    More and more companies are relying on red teams and penetration tests to identify gaps in their security controls, monitoring capabilities, and response process. While these events are extremely useful, they typically occur on a semi-annual, often irregular schedule that provides a snapshot in time of an organization's security posture. The accessibility of offensive tools makes it so that defenders don't have to wait for the next pen test. They can utilize some of the same tools and techniques to identify weaknesses, validate vulnerability scans, and harden their networks. This half-day workshop introduces participants to the penetration testing process, tools used during red team operations, and how these can be used to identify gaps in existing security controls.

    Attendees who want to participate in the hands-on exercises will need a laptop running Windows 7 with full administrative access and Powershell 5.0. Students are recommended to have Windows running within VMware or similar virtualization software for ease of testing. Additional software recommendations will be sent prior to class.
