The time has come for our industry to work together and collectively advocate for stronger protections for professional penetration testers.

To encourage this collaboration, Coalfire is planning to intiate a workgroup of interested parties with the goal of making meaningful improvements that benefit us all. We encourage anyone interested to register. You don’t have to be a pen tester to participate — we also want to hear from pen test customers, law enforcement, contract experts, and government.

Our experience in Iowa highlighted three areas where our industry’s combined efforts could make a big difference for all:

  • Contracts – clarity and consistency in service order language and rules of engagement 
  • Awareness – education and outreach to the buying and law enforcement communities
  • Protection – legislation so our teams can do their jobs without fear of arrest (see our article in Dark Reading for some initial thoughts) 

We know you have other ideas as well — let’s get together and figure out how we can more effectively support the professionals in the security community who work on the frontlines every day.
