Course facts

  • Understanding that you are bound to secrecy, confidentiality and non-disclosure to the employer and clients
  • Putting yourself in the shoes of the customer (internal or external) to understand their needs

  • Installing, configuring and operating tools for finding and analyzing vulnerabilities and performing web application penetration tests
  • Applying your expertise to assist internal and external auditors in conducting security audits
  • Gaining a basic understanding of the principles of secure software development

Studies show that more than 90% of all web applications have serious security flaws, although effective countermeasures exist for most types of attacks. Vulnerabilities are mostly found in architecture and design, in application logic, in program code, in 3rd party libraries or in deployment and configuration.

Based on the OWASP Top 10, you will learn about the current attack methods on (web) applications and how effective protective measures should be taken
