Next, you will determine who tests the security and learn how to confirm their test methods. Discover how to review the test outcome to determine the level of acceptable risks, risk impacts, and risk treatments. Learn how to avoid scope creep with clients, and identify threat actors and agents. Conclude by aligning tests to regulations and standards, such as PCI DSS, FISMA, MARS-E, HIPAA, SOX, and ISO.
