Prepare yourself for the in demand GIAC Web Application Penetration Tester (GWAPT) Certification.
It is not going too far to say that our modern society runs more and more on web based applications. Most of these a custom made, meaning that security issues are unique to each application and there is no “Patch Tuesday” that will magically fix any issues in your website. Vulnerabilities in these applications can therefore lead to major problems for all of us.
The aim of this 5-days course is to give participates with some knowledge of web applications and networking the knowledge required to find common vulnerabilities in HTTP(S) based applications and to present those in a convincing way to clients.
It will also prepare participants for the GIAC Web Application Penetration Tester (GWAPT) certification examination.
