Seminar: “Pentesting in the Real World — Why does your organization need one?”

Let’s face it, it’s terrible to hear someone call your baby ugly. In the context of keeping your network secure, that’s kind of what the suggestion of a pen-test feels like. Entire days, weeks, years, and even careers are spent dedicated to securing your organization’s IT infrastructure. You think the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed, but you still have that paranoid feeling – are the hackers still able to get in? How? Where? This is where a pen-test can help.

In this presentation, Mr. Laverty will take you through the process of a penetration test and explain some common findings and vulnerabilities, with a real-world story or two mixed in.

Patrick Laverty is a Security Consultant for Rapid7 doing penetration testing. He has also done incident response and been a web application developer, and is a guest lecturer in Brown University’s Executive Masters in Cybersecurity. He has presented at a number of Security BSides conferences including Boston, New York and Baltimore. He also teaches Rapid7’s Application Assault course. Patrick created the Rhode Island chapter of OWASP and recently brought back DefCon401, another security meeting group, and is a member of US Congressman James Langevin’s Cyber Security Advisory Council.
