Do you get excited about talks at hacker conferences, only to return to your office feeling like you have too few resources to implement anything you learned? We'll be discussing ways to start implementing internal attack and penetration programs to let you have fun in the workplace while providing value to your organization. We will start with small tasks that can be easily introduced for fast and inexpensive wins, and expand into ways to sell more complicated engagements to management. From small hacking demos in security awareness presentations, to phishing slack and hipchat, or even full scale physical penetration tests, we've got something doable for any security practitioner in nearly any environment.
