The first guide to planning and performing a physical penetration test on your computer's security
Most IT security teams concentrate on keeping networks and systems safe from attacks from the outside-but what if your attacker was on the inside? While nearly all IT teams perform a variety of network and application penetration testing procedures, an audit and test of the physical location has not been as prevalent. IT teams are now increasingly requesting physical penetration tests, but there is little available in terms of training. The goal of the test is to demonstrate any deficiencies in operating procedures concerning physical security.
Featuring a Foreword written by world-renowned hacker Kevin D. Mitnick and lead author of The Art of Intrusion and The Art of Deception, this book is the first guide to planning and performing a physical penetration test. Inside, IT security expert Wil Allsopp guides you through the entire process from gathering intelligence, getting inside, dealing with threats, staying hidden (often in plain sight), and getting access to networks and data.
Teaches IT security teams how to break into their own facility in order to defend against such attacks, which is often overlooked by IT security teams but is of critical importance
Deals with intelligence gathering, such as getting access building blueprints and satellite imagery, hacking security cameras, planting bugs, and eavesdropping on security channels
Includes safeguards for consultants paid to probe facilities unbeknown to staff
Covers preparing the report and presenting it to management
In order to defend data, you need to think like a thief-let Unauthorised Access show you how to get inside.
This book will take readers from the discovery of vulnerabilities and the creation of the corresponding exploits, through a complete security assessment, all the way through deploying patches against these vulnerabilities to protect their networks.
This is unique in that it details both the management and technical skill and tools required to develop an effective vulnerability management system. Business case studies and real world vulnerabilities are used through the book. It starts by introducing the reader to the concepts of a vulnerability management system. Readers will be provided detailed timelines of exploit development, vendors' time to patch, and corporate path installations. Next, the differences between security assessment s and penetration tests will be clearly explained along with best practices for conducting both. Next, several case studies from different industries will illustrate the effectiveness of varying vulnerability assessment methodologies. The next several chapters will define the steps of a vulnerability assessment including: defining objectives, identifying and classifying assets, defining rules of engagement, scanning hosts, and identifying operating systems and applications. The next several chapters provide detailed instructions and examples for differentiating vulnerabilities from configuration problems, validating vulnerabilities through penetration testing. The last section of the book provides best practices for vulnerability management and remediation.
* Unique coverage detailing both the management and technical skill and tools required to develop an effective vulnerability management system
* Vulnerability management is rated the #2 most pressing concern for security professionals in a poll conducted by Information Security Magazine
* Covers in the detail the vulnerability management lifecycle from discovery through patch.
The Ethical Hack: A Framework for Business Value Penetration Testing lays out the underlying methodologies and concepts required for performing successful and valuable penetration testing. The author discusses the process of penetration testing from a consultative point of view to ensure that the true value of the test is realized. He supplies a technical perspective of the common tools and exploits used by attackers along with the rational for why they are used and the information they provide the attacker. Finally, the text brings it all together in the form of attack scenarios to show the complete cycle of the attack from the hacker's perspective to the client's.

Learn The Best Way to Hack for Beginners
Hackers are technically skilled people who have the ability to circumvent the security of a computer or network with their technical expertise. This kind of circumvention may involve unauthorized access into a system or a network (such hackers are called Black hat hackers). But, sometimes such circumvention happens when a security expert tries to uncover the vulnerabilities and bugs of a system (such hackers are called white hat hackers or ethical hackers). Black hack hackers mostly attack a system for monetary gain or with other malicious intentions. Ethical hackers on the other hand use their knowledge and skills to safeguard a system or a network against black hat hackers.
