Join us for the next installment of the SANS-APAC webcast series where we will provide a technical look at SANS SEC660 - Advanced Penetration Testing: Attacking Network Devices.
In this one hour webcast, Stephen will walk through and demonstrate a couple of the penetration testing techniques from SANS SEC660 that target network devices, such as routers and switches. It is common to find misconfigurations and inconsistencies on company networks that allow for attacks such as VLAN hopping, NAC bypass, and route injection. Understanding these techniques can help you improve your penetration testing skills, as well as better audit your own environment to improve defenses.
