Under the Hoodie: Lessons from a Season of Penetration Testing

Presented by

Tod Beardsley, Research Director and Kwan Lin, Senior Data Scientist

About this talk

In 2017, Rapid7 launched the “Under the Hoodie” project to shed light on the “dark art” of pen testing by revealing the process, techniques, and tools that go into it, as well as the insights that can be extracted. The 2019 Under the Hoodie report continues to provide visibility into this often occult niche of information security. Based on the results of about 180 engagements conducted in the most recent season of penetration testing, as well as real-world anecdotes from our engineers and investigators, our research explores recent trends and patterns derived from penetration testing. For this webcast in our Best of 2019 Series, join Rapid7 experts for an engaging discussion where you will learn: The report’s most significant findings, including the most commonly exploited vulnerability classes and network misconfigurations The most effective methods our team has found to compromise high-value credentials How you can use the data in the report to effectively detect and prevent breaches on your own network
