Beyond Scanning: Impact Driven Vulnerability Assessments

  • Matthew Toussain
  • Thursday, February 15th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Vulnerability Assessment is more than simply clicking print on your scanner of choice. Moving beyond a stagnant checklist-limited approach and modeling assessments after the attacker's perspective is a crucial component of any transformational vulnerability management program. Together, let's explore the world of vulnerability dominance.

In this talk, we will take action on an enterprise scale by leveraging force multiplying tools and techniques like PowerShell. Instead of writing off the bulk of your assessment time managing and churning through untold quantities of data, let's target for impact. By exploring methods to deconstruct logistical precursors and integrate adversarial threat modeling, we can skip the noise and focus in on true threat signals. Using a seven-step vulnerability assessment model to guide our keystrokes, we can ensure repeatable value while delivering elite engagements.
