Penetration Testing hits Reality TV

Filed under Penetration Testing

Some of you may have seen the new reality TV show on CourtTV over the holidays called “Tiger Team”. This show is about a team of penetration testers hired to break in to some high profile companies using some pretty cool techniques. While you won’t see anything technically earth shattering (as Grumpy Security Guy mentions), you will see how easy it is to breach the physical security of places you would think have good security controls in place. Again, this summarizes that that weakest link will always be humans (social engineering) and that with enough time and ingenuity, you will get in. As a pen tester it’s worth watching, even if some of it is done up a bit too much for Hollywood.

You can watch the episodes via CourtTV. There are also Torrents available…
