The major cause of web insecurity is poor development practices. This highly intensive 1-day bootcamp provides essential application security training for web application, webservices and mobile software developers and architects. The class is a combination of lecture, hands-on security testing and code review. Participants will not only learn the most common threats against applications, but more importantly they will learn how to also fix the problems and design secure solutions via defense-based code samples and review.

We provide free email support for life for all students.
