You have recently joined Emirates-Technic, a premier security consulting firm just outside of Dubai, UAE. Emirates-Technic has been approached by a large manufacturing company in Sharjah to evaluate and test the security of its network. However, the job is not without its challenges. While the information technology (IT) director understands the value and need for a security and penetration test, other individuals in upper management do not.
You have been asked to prepare a presentation to describe what penetration is and the value that it brings to the organization.
Prepare and submit a presentation briefing in Microsoft Word. This should be geared towards a non-technical executive management team.
The briefing should include the following elements:
A description and overview of penetration testing.
The value of penetration testing to the organization. This can be demonstrated with case studies, relevant media or news events, etc. If possible, use at least one example from the Middle East.
A description of at least three types of security tests that will be provided.
An explanation of how the results of the penetration test will help improve security.
The presentation briefing should be 4-6 pages in length, not including the title and reference pages. Be sure to cite and reference all sources used.
