Training Course: Hacking and Securing Web Applications


NCC Group XYZ Building 2 Hardman Boulevard Spinningfields Manchester M3 3AQ

Web applications are on the rise and the technologies they are based upon constantly evolving, but how do they really work and how can you attack or secure them? The two-day Hacking and Securing Web Applications course, held in Manchester, UK, covers the methodology to assess the security of a web application and provides detailed guidance on secure development, relating to both the design and implementation of web applications. The course is a mix of presentations and hands-on labs sessions where you can practice and experience how application vulnerabilities are detected and exploited by attackers and how applications can successfully defend against these attacks.
