Getting The Most From Your Red Team Engagement – A Roundtable (OK, A Triangular-Table) Discussion

You’ve probably heard (probably from salespeople) that a great way to assess your organization’s security capabilities is by letting a “Red Team” have a go at them. But what is a Red Team, and how do their services differ from a typical Penetration Test? Why should you choose one or the other? What should you expect to get out of the engagement? What questions should you ask ahead of time and what should you make sure the engagement covers? What should you NOT expect a Red Team assessment to accomplish? We’ll discuss these questions (and more) in a 3-person panel discussion.

** Please bring your own questions about Red Teaming for the panel!**
