So I’m listening to the “Larry, Larry, Larry” episode of the Risk Hose podcast, and Alex is talking about data-driven pen tests. I want to posit that pen tests are already empirical. Pen testers know what techniques work for them, and start with those techniques.
What we could use are data-driven pen test reports. “We tried X, which works in 78% of attempts, and it failed.”
We could also use more shared data about what tests tend to work.
