Title: Security Testing - Be Careful what you ask for…

Date/Time: 10am, Tuesday 7 Feb 2012, B.2 (Merchiston)


We need to have a common language to communicate effectively and this is no different within Information Security. This presentation looks to define what is commonly referred to as 'Penetration Testing' and by doing so empower individuals to understand what they are asking for. More importantly we will look at what happens when you don’t get what you wanted but what you actually asked for!
