Cyber security is a combined effort of technologies, tools, policies and laws applicable for making cyber world safe. Cyber Security is becoming increasingly important in today’s world and is impacting every aspect of society including finance, healthcare, government, education, arts and entertainment.
Penetration testing is a mix of different tools and techniques by which enhanced cyber security may be achieved as it evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, service and application flaws, improper configurations, or risky end-user behavior.
Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies. This workshop will impart penetration testing knowledge and train participants from academics, industries and research field in tools like NMAP, BURPSUITE and METASPLOIT.
The workshop is accessible to both non-experts interested in learning and experts interested in sharing different techniques and approaches in Penetration testing area. We will address inherent vulnerabilities and emerging threats associated with global Internet connectivity and information and communication technology.
