SANS Pen Testing Summit

SANS WhatWorks in Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking Summit with Ed Skoudis
Summit Dates = June 2 - 3, 2008
Pre & Post Courses = May 31 - June 9, 2008
Paris Hotel
Las Vegas, NV

Summit Overview

To secure their infrastructure and meet compliance requirements, enterprises increasingly rely on comprehensive penetration testing and vulnerability assessments. Various regulations, the Payment Card Industry standards, and basic due diligence require finding security flaws through the use of assessment and penetration testing methods before malicious attackers find them. But, without skilled personnel, a professional and repeatable process, and trustworthy tools, penetration testing is a shot in the dark and could be dangerous to enterprise operations. The SANS Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking Summit brings together industry leaders to help enterprises get the most out of their penetration testing. We'll discuss the latest processes and technologies for effective vulnerability discovery and remediation throughout an enterprise. In a series of highly interactive sessions, expert penetration testers and enterprise personnel will share lessons learned from the trenches with the goal of helping others improve their testing operations. Detailed Q&A sessions will let attendees grill the experts to get deep into policy, process, and technical aspects of testing. Several case studies will illustrate best practices as well as techniques to avoid. Vendor shoot-outs provide an opportunity to ask hard questions to determine which tools best meet business and technical requirements. Whether your organization performs penetration testing in-house or relies on third-party testing companies, this SANS Summit will help you maximize the value of your testing budget.

Re: SANS Pen Testing Summit

Sweet!  I'll have a drinking buddy!  I was scheduled for this course when it was in May, and now that they've moved it to June I get the free multi-pass.  I'm not sure whether I'll be there for the pre-conference courses or post, but I'll figure something out.

Re: SANS Pen Testing Summit

If you haven't seen my other post, I will be presenting at the Summit. Who else is going?

I arrive on Monday and leave on Tues, so my time is limited. But feel free to come up and introduce yourself.

Re: SANS Pen Testing Summit

Unfortunately I am a guest of SANS, so it is their decision. Fortunately, they have given me permission to record and post my own talk (if no one in the audience has a probem with it). But I can't speak for the others. I highly doubt that I can get them.

On the other hand, I should have the audio recordings for ChicagoCon posted next week. For that I do have control.  ;D

Re: SANS Pen Testing Summit

Don,
Just wanted to throw out a quick note that I really enjoyed your talk at the conference.  If anyone gets a chance to listen to the recording or to hear him speak at another conference, I strongly encourage it. 

and if they have this summit again next year, it's definitely worth going.  I expected it to be good, but I think it's even more than I expected.
