Talk presented by MWR

  • Time:
  • Room: The Forum, Bryanston
  • Topic: Targeted Attack Simulation: a real world view of detection and response capability
  • Speakers: Jacques Louw
  • Description: The security industry has come to realize that, while traditional penetration tests offer valuable assurance around the security of specific applications, they lack the ability to identify the attacks conducted by real world attackers. This talk will discuss methods for improving traditional testing approaches to better engage and develop an organisation’s detection and response capabilities.
