This is a flashback from July 2015. 

Mr. Boettcher and I discussed SQLMAP, a tool that can automate the process of pentesting databases and even registries on Windows.  We discuss some functions of the program and why developers should get training on these.

Mr. Boettcher and I talk about how Infosec professionals should help to educate QA and Developers to be able to look at their processes and incorporate security testing, using tools like sqlmap in the Software lifecycle.

It only gets better in Part 2 of our Interview with Georgia Weidman, Author, Security Researcher and Creator of the Smartphone Pentesting Framework.

 

She talks about how people underestimate the mobile platform for pentesting purposes, and we even find out that in addition to Teaching a class on exploit development at BlackHat this year, she's going to be helping a great organization overseas.

We also got her talking about some do's and don'ts of pentesting! ;)

Please enjoy!

So, I uploaded this little tutorial of nmap, a very nice tool I use on a regular basis, both at home and at work.

I did some basic scans, showed off the command line and the Windows 'Zenmap' version, as well as discussed some regularly used switches.

The next video I do about nmap will discuss more switches, the Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE), and how to format reports and the output nmap provides.

We have a real treat the next two weeks.  Author and Mobile Security Researcher Georgia Weidman, who we also found out will be providing exploit development training at Black Hat this year.

She is the author of an awesome book "Penetration Testing: A Hands-On Introduction to Hacking" (http://www.amazon.com/Penetration-Testing-Hands-On-Introduction-Hacking/dp/1593275641/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1405304124&sr=8-1&keywords=georgia+weidman)

She sat down with us over Skype and gave a nice talk about where she came from,  and why she wrote the book, and even what she's about to do in the future (that's next week) ;) You'll have to listen next week to find out the awesome trip she's about to take.

This is the continuation of our podcast from last week with Phil Beyer.

We started out talking about risk registers, and we end the podcast with a little Q&A about positions in companies (Chief Risk Officer, Chief Data Protection Officer), and whether these positions are useful.
