As part of Infosecurity's new ‘Life of...’ series, this webinar will look at the role of the penetration tester. Often deemed as “an ethical hacker”, this webinar will address how to become a successful penetration tester, who you should be accredited with, what certifications you need to become recognized and what inspires those who do it to get into it, and keep doing it.
The webinar will also analyze what is dragging the profession back, considering poor practices by low-skilled consultants, people who think that using basic tools does the job, and how to deal with an untrusting clientele.
This webinar will bring together some of the leading names in penetration testing to discuss these topics and give listeners a better insight into the life of a penetration, detailing struggles, challenges and successes.
There will be a Q&A session where listeners will be able to put their questions to the expert panel of pen testers.
In this webinar you will:
- Get an insight into the lives of penetration testers
- Receive advice on how to start or evolve a career in pen testing
- Compare how the industry works with both large consultancies and freelance testers, and consider what they bring to the table respectively
- Question whether penetration testing is a market driven by cost or quality of service
