Trainers will engage participants with lectures, live attack demonstrations and practical examples followed by individual hands-on exercise scenarios. Training is interactive, practical, and besides active participation also full of attack stories that help to change the perspective and understanding of real life security threats.
Ideology of this training
This training focuses on attacks so that the need for defence is better understood. OWASP project should be the bible of everyone dealing with WebApp development and security and OWASP ASVS (Application Security Verification Standard) is one of the golden standards of WebApp security testing. This training will cover all WebApp attack types and instills this knowledge with lot of hands-on exercises. With first-hand experience in those attacks, participants are better armed with understanding the attacks and why they are conducted.
