This 1 day tutorial will look at the logistical concerns for requesting a penetration test, and the technical tools & techniques for executing your own security assessment. You will learn using free tools in a hands-on lab environment. The tools can then be used to immediately increase the security visibility on your network, and the lab environment will be made available to continue your learning experience after the tutorial.
