Application Security for Web Developers: A 2 day highly-practical course that targets web developers, security auditors, penetration testers, security managers and anyone else who would like to learn about writing secure code or to audit code against security flaws. The course covers each and every vulnerability in-depth and discusses a variety of the best security practices and defence-in-depth approach which developers should keep in mind while developing applications.
The attendees will be provided access to infrastructure on which they will be practicing to identify vulnerable code and subsequently discuss patching approaches.
