What makes a good pentest report?
The segment will focus on the importance of a high-quality report and what red and blue teamers should recognize goes into a good report. Often times, there’s no feedback loop after report delivery and collaboration can be limited post-engagement. That will lead into a demo of PlexTrac to highlight the efficiencies we provide when creating and receiving a report.
