SANS Pen Test Challenge Coin: SEC460



With every SANS Pen Test Challenge Coin comes a story. In addition to symbolizing achievement and knowledge, a Pen Test Challenge Coin is a physical manifestation of the keyboard skills demonstrated by the winners of our course's Capture-the-Flag exercise.

The front of the SEC460: Enterprise Threat and Vulnerability Assessment challenge coin carries the SEC460 logo and title. Great Vulnerability Assessors require an unwavering, burning passion to overcome the endless river of vulnerability data that major corporate networks are inundated with. The SEC460 logo represents this enthusiastic perseverance and attention to detail, the hallmarks of any excellent vulnerability team.

Hands-on labs and challenges are all conducted on a cyber range featuring the components of a large corporate environment. To represent this leap into the deep, dark, and unknown corners of large-scale network environments, the rear of the coin is adorned with an image of the HMS Enterprise — a vessel whose very name attests to daring military engagements.

The reverse side of the coin carries the SEC460 slogan: We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails. A defining and shared experience of all Vulnerability Assessors is the constantly shifting corporate environments we are charged to protect. While we may not be able to define the direction our organizations take, we are endowed with the opportunity to observe and think opportunistically in protecting them.
Like all other Pen Test coins before it, the SEC460: Enterprise Threat and Vulnerability Assessment challenge coin is its own challenge. The cipher itself connects to the nautical history of the image of the vessel above it. Who will be the first to crack it?
