#1400 Rename Penetration Testing to Threat and Vulnerability Management change request accepted

PENT includes threat intelligence, vulnerability assessment as well as penetration testing. This change request is to ask that the skill name is reconsidered to cover threat and vulnerability management.

Penetration testing is one specific technique for determining vulnerabilities.  However, the skill covers the landscape of threat intelligence, vulnerability assessment and penetration testing and should therefore be renamed.

Proposed change applies to Penetration testing

Current status of this request: accepted

What we decided

Accepted into broader review of security skills for SFIA 8.

What we changed

New skill added called Vulnerability assessment, PENT description updated, new skill called Threat intelligence added
