Is Offensive Security part of your 2024 Security Roadmap? We caught up with Sam Kirkman, Director at NetSPI EMEA at BlackHat Europe 2023 about what an Offensive Security Roadmap going into 2024 should look like. Offensive security is much more than pentesting. We spoke about how to build a capable team, different maturity stages of building such a program and resources you can lean on while you are on this journey across different industries.
