Journal: Pentesters needed for questionnaire

Journal by olderchurch

I am writing my thesis for my EDP auditor education. In my thesis I will compare the used methods and standards used by penetration testers with the method and standards used by the Dutch IT auditor association.

I need to know which methods and standards are used the most by penetration testers and how the final report looks like. To get my answers I have developed this short questionnaire about penetration testing. It will ask questions about methodologies, standards, classification and reports.

The questionnaire consists of 22 questions and will only take a few minutes. You can find the questionnaire here:
You would help me a lot by completing this questionnaire. I will share the results here for your benefit.

  • Yahoo Messenger (Versions 5.x and 6.x)
  • Google Talk
