Penetration Test

From your studies, you have learned what ethical hacking and penetration testing are and the common hacking methodologies that are used to conduct these tests. As technologists, it is important to understand hacker’s tools and techniques so we can use those same techniques to assess our networks.

  • Determine whether or not you believe penetration tests are necessary and an integral part of a security program and discuss why or why not. Imagine you are an information security manager. Explicate whether or not you would consider utilizing penetration testing in your environment, and, if so, in what capacity. In a few sentences, describe the most important business areas and or network infrastructure components that would be most beneficial to test. Can you recommend a website, as a potential useful resource that outlines best practices for conducting an internal penetration test? Share with your classmates, and  provide links to any useful resource you find.

After reading a few of your classmate’s postings, reply to the ones from which you learned something new, or to which you have something to add. Remember to get in early and post often.
