Yes, Even These: Physical Penetration Testing Tools

While there are a number of gadgets associated with cracking through a business's defenses, your physical penetration tester may be using some of these unusual tools to get the job done rather simply.

Not every physical penetration testing engagement plays out like an Ocean's 11 movie, and depending on your business, and your tester, your engagement may require a different set of tools.

Physical penetration testers Phil Grimes and Meaghann Lees cover some unique items they've used in past engagements – real world, practical tools that helped them gain access to restricted areas.

In this webinar, we talk about...

  • a brief overview of some unorthodox physical pen testing tools
  • the reasoning behind choosing certain tools & the types of attacks in which they're used
  • the stories of four unique tools used to gain access
  • a "no tools" engagement

Date: Tuesday, September 15th, 1pm CT
