BSides Detroit 12 Interviews 21

This week Chris and Wolfgang talk to Dave Kennedy. Normally people only ask him about SET and social engineering. While we did talk about those things, we were really interested in his Key Note talk about Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES). It’s about changing the industry.

Abstract: The Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) was just released in its first draft form at DerbyCon 2011. Since then, there has been an overwhelming amount of input placed on changing the way the industry does Penetration Testing. This talk will cover what defines a penetration test, what they are used for, and how you can change the industry for the better.
