1:30 PM thru 2:25 PM- Keep calm and BYOTTP - Leveling up your Offensive Security Game

Ryan Watson

Hey there! It's worth remembering that not every offensive toolkit you come across will fit your specific needs. As a Red Teamer or Penetration Tester, it's important to have a solid grasp of Offensive Security Tools Tactics and Procedures (TTPs) and potentially create or modify them as per your requirements. Don't worry, though! In this presentation, I'm here to lend a helping hand by outlining the key areas you should focus on to take your game to the next level. Whether you choose to build your own TTPs from scratch or utilize existing research to improve them, I've got your back. Also, I have a little surprise for you at the end of this presentation to help you get started! So, let's keep calm, focus on building our own Tools, Tactics, and Procedures (BYOTTP), and have some fun while we're at it!

I'll cover everything from responding to a ransomware attack to the strategic planning required for a resilient security program. Discover how to adapt security measures to the ever-evolving threat landscape and align them with your organization's vision and objectives.

You'll gain a practical understanding of SWOT and PEST analyses, how to use industry-standard maturity frameworks, and conduct gap analyses to pinpoint security weaknesses. Learn how to prioritize security initiatives using a decision matrix and navigate stakeholder relationships effectively.
