Pentest Essentials

In this virtual Q&A session, Dr. Joey Coleman dives deeper into pentesting essentials based on real examples and personal experiences with Cobalt's Pentest as a Service.

Optimizing Your First Pentest

Key Takeaways

A pentest is not one-size-fits-all. Although no two engagements are the same there is a lot to learn from what others in the industry have done.  

In this webinar,  Dr. Joey Coleman offers advice and mentorship for CTOs, engineering leaders, and IT managers on how to build, manage and optimize your pentest program with Cobalt. 

Some of the questions he explores: 

  • What attributes you should look for in a 3rd party pentest partner?
  • Where should pentesting fit into your SDLC?
  • What steps should you take before launching your pentest program?
  • How can Cobalt change your approach to pentesting?

 

  • Getting 3rd-party pentesting expertise to evaluate your applications provides different answers than doing it in-house
  • Integrate pentesting into your Quality Engineering (QE) cycle for a robust security testing program
  • Create a clean, production-like environment, setup credentials, fill out the scope details, and let Cobalt have at it
  • The interactivity and lesser cost of using Cobalt facilities running pentests more frequently
