Web Application Security Testing Foundation

Hackers exploit vulnerable software. Prevent their attacks by learning to think like one. In this two-day training taught in Dutch or English, you will look at security from an attacker's perspective. Build defensive skills as a web developer and offensive skills as a tester. Get proactive and protect your software by learning how to probe for risks that exploit discrete vulnerabilities.
