The Secure Development Training is a two-day (16 hour) instructor lead course that covers a variety of topics including the OWASP Top 10 Web Application Security Vulnerabilities, Threat Modeling, Basic Security Theory and Encryption. The course includes hands-on labs, interactive exercises and group discussion driven exercises. Special attention is given to mitigation of vulnerabilities in the lab application, particularly at design time or during initial application development.
Real-world examples drawn from the pen testing experience of the instructor are used to demonstrate how minor vulnerabilities can be chained into surprising compromises. The goal of this course is to increase the security awareness and experience among develops with the subsequent result of producing increasingly rugged code going forward. Additional information covering the gambit of resources available to developers from OWASP is interwoven into the course. When complete with the course, attendees should have increased their security foo substantially.
The lab application is written in Python but the training will be programming language agnostic. Cost is $495.
