In this webinar we will discuss the aggregate and anonymized findings of penetration testing engagements conducted by Coalfire Labs for External Network, Internal Network and Application penetration tests and social engineering.
Coalfire Labs practice leader will go into the detail behind our recently published Penetration Risk Report, discussing the penetration testing methodology, analysis and recommendations for mitigating the commonly found vulnerabilities in organizations worldwide.
Key findings from the report that will be discussed:
- Contrary to the 2018 report and a shift in demographic toward cloud providers, large enterprises have taken the ‘sweet spot’ for overall security
- The move to the cloud is having a tangible effect on security posture and vulnerabilities as seen in our data – we tested more cloud clients and saw more cloud-related vulnerabilities, with cross-site scripting, injection, and security misconfiguration topping the list.
- While external networks are still fairly secure, and internal networks are still fairly insecure in parallel with last year’s results, app security has increased due to migration of in-house-developed applications to the cloud and by leveraging the appropriate skilled resources.
