Show Notes for Episode 64: Penetration Testing and Remediation in Cybersecurity

Welcome to Episode 64 of our cybersecurity-focused podcast! In this installment, our host Bryan Young is joined by two experts in the field of cyber defense, Megan Scherer and Ryan Wager from Secure Network Technologies. Dive deep with us as we explore the critical roles that penetration testing and remediation play in safeguarding organizations against digital threats.

Main Themes:

  • The Importance of Penetration Testing: Our guests discuss how penetration tests are crucial for identifying weaknesses in a variety of infrastructural setups, from small businesses to large enterprises.

  • Cybersecurity Remediation: Learn about the steps that need to be taken once vulnerabilities are found, and the importance of timely and effective action to protect an organization’s data integrity.

  • Awareness of Cyber Risks: Megan and Ryan stress the need for organizations to be fully aware of the potential risks to their clients, suppliers, and internal operations. They also address the unique challenges faced by organizations without specialized IT teams or a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).

  • Internal Collaboration: Drawing parallels with the development issues of the Ford Pinto, the discussion turns to the importance of internal collaboration within organizations to prevent and mitigate security risks.

  • Keeping Up with Evolving Threats: The ever-changing landscape of cybersecurity means constant vigilance and updates to security measures are necessary. The episode touches on the possibility of using automation to stay ahead of the game, especially with the emergence of state-sponsored cyber threats.

  • Partnership with Driven: Hear about Secure Network Technologies’ partnership with Driven and how it has helped in pinpointing security vulnerabilities.
