Offensive talks are easy, I know. But the goal of offensive security at the end of the day is to make us better defenders. And that's hard. Usually after the pentesters (or worst - red team) leaves, there's a whole lot of mess of vulnerabilities, exposures, threats, risks and wounded egos. Now comes the money time - can you fix this so your security posture will actually be better the next time these guys come around? This talk focuses mainly on what should be done (note - no what should be BOUGHT - you probably have most of what you need already in place and you just don't know it yet). Methodically, defensively, decisively. Just like the red-team can play ball cross-court, so should you!
