(This bounced around the twitters all day today but figured it would
be interesting to hear thoughts from DD)

At 44Con-2011 we did a presentation titled: "Penetration Testing
considered harmful today"

The central thesis of the talk is that penetration testing has
established itself as a necessary activity for securing a network and
is now pushed forward by a multi million dollar industry despite the
clear signs that it is not helping all that much.
