The ‘Penn Test Security Challenge’ uses gamification penetration testing exercises as part of their security program to provide Penn Medicine with uniquely experienced staff that can effectively assess internal technologies to mitigate advanced vulnerabilities before they ever occur. Hacker and exploitation gaming not only increases the staff’s satisfaction; it simultaneously matures their skill level. Performing penetration testing exercises with real-world vulnerabilities and exploits, enables team-building and discovery to understand complex attacker techniques as well as remediate technology security issues. Building skills in a creative way prevents knowledge gaps for undiscovered threats and potential for new exploit attempts by malicious attackers. This session will focus on how this unique training: 

  • increased employee retention
  • expanded team knowledge and experience
  • reduced organizational risk
