New Training: Penetration testing planning and scoping. In this 25-video intermediate training, Shawn Powers, SPOTO trainer, covers the knowledge security professionals need to determine which networks, applications, databases and accounts will be targeted in a particular penetration test and how they can be defined for testers. This is the new CompTIA Security Training. Without enough planning and scoping, a penetration test would be like walking back to your car and checking the doors of all other cars in the lot. A penetration test can be a great way to double-check your network security posture. However, if you don’t plan well, it can cost you a lot of money and time. You can include devices or networks that you don’t care about, or you can look for vulnerabilities that you already know exist. This training teaches you how to identify stakeholders, gather data, assess needs, balance costs, plan the scope of a penetration testing. This four-part series covers topics like identifying key stakeholders and how to determine the ideal scope of a pen test, how to balance security gains with pen test costs, and how to gather sufficient information to properly scope tests.
