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.

Who should take this course?

Hacking and Securing Web Applications is a course aimed at software developers, software architects, security consultants and quality assurance engineers who want to understand how attackers uncover and exploit vulnerabilities in web applications, and what can be done by developers to prevent it.
