Virtual Penetration Testing: A Joint Education Exercise across Geographic Borders

Abstract : This paper describes an exercise that combines the business case for penetration testing with the application of the testing and subsequent management reporting. The exercise was designed for students enrolled in information systems and computer science courses to present a more holistic understanding of network and system security within an organization. This paper explains the objectives and structure of the exercise and its planned execution by two groups of students, the first group being information systems students in Australia and the second group comprising students enrolled in a computer security course in the United States.
