This months topic:
Vulnerability Management

Vulnerability Management is something many organisations struggle with and this month you will get chance to deep dive into Vulnerability Scanning. We will cover:

• Modern Techniques for Asset Discovery and Finger Printing - the early phases of reconnaissance. Tips and tricks to runnings asset discovery and fingerprint scans. Session will focus on the various techniques available with hands on examples using Nessus, Tenable.sc and Tenable.io
• Using vulnerability scanners to NOT scan for vulnerabilities. Vulnerability scanning tools can do a lot more than scan for vulns. This is all about audit file scripting and some of the weird and wonderful things you can actually do. Session will cover some theory with hands on examples using Tenable.io and Tenable.sc
• Challenges of Web App Scanning in the modern era. Its not just html and asp anymore! Some of the challenges and techniques for hunting for web application vulnerabilities with some of the modern web application development frameworks. Session will cover some theory in addition to launching some web app scans against real targets using Tenable.io

What to Bring:

If you would like to participate in the hands on part of the session please bring a laptop. Anything that has an internet connection will be fine. If you don't have a laptop I will have a couple spare - first in best dressed.
