Book Review: Advanced Penetration Testing

Oct. 8, 2017 0 comments Hacking Tutorials Pen Testing & Audits

A couple weeks ago I picked up a book with the very appealing title: Advanced Penetration Testing: Hacking the world’s most secure networks. The author of this book is the seasoned information security expert Wil Allsopp and it has been published by Wiley in March 2017. The foreword has been written by Hans van Looy, founder of Madison Gurkha (I’ve always wondered about this name when I saw it, finally explained in the foreword). The back cover states that this book is about more complex attack simulation and Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) modelling featuring techniques that are way beyond using Metasploit and vulnerability scanners.
