Intensive Hands-On Training:
The Web Application Penetration Testing course from InfoSec Institute is a totally hands-on learning experience. From the first day to the last day, you will learn the ins and outs of Web App Pen Testing by attending thought provoking lectures led by an expert instructor. Every lecture is directly followed up by a comprehensive lab exercise (we also set up and provide lab workstations so you don’t waste valuable class time installing tools and apps).
Typical lab exercises consist of a real-world app that demonstrates a vulnerability commonly found in a web app. You learn how to assess the app much as a black hat hacker would, exploit the app so that you can demonstrate the true risk of the vulnerability to the application owner. This can involve taking control of the application itself, downloading data the application stores, or potentially using the app as a launching pad to attack unsuspecting visitors with a malicious script. Finally, the lab will follow up with remediation steps so that the application owner can properly close down the security hole for good.
Up To Date, Current, Courseware
The threat landscape for Web Applications changes on a near continuous basis. Bad guys wishing to attack your applications know that they need to stay ahead of the curve in order to get in. For this reason, InfoSec Institute continuously updates our Web App Pen Testing courseware to cover the latest and greats threats, exploits and mitigation strategies.
InfoSec Institute instructors that teach the Web App Pen Testing course are highly seasoned and have years of in the field pen testing experience. Not only are they active in the field of pen testing, they are industry-recognized experts that present at conferences such as DEFCON, Black Hat Briefings, RSA Security. Many of our instructors have authored some of the top Penetration Testing books on the market today.
Nightly Capture The Flag (CTF) Exercises:
After learning important Web App Pen Testing concepts during the day in a structured learning environment led by an expert instructor, it is important in the knowledge transfer process to attempt to apply the concepts you learned during the day in an unscripted, controlled exercise. The InfoSec Institute CTF exercises consist of a variety of web applications set up and designed to mimic the web presence ofa company, a bank, a credit union, and an internal web app. You are then challenged by the instructor to capture specific flags that require you to apply your knowledge gained during the day. The CTFs areinstructor-supervised, so if you get stuck, there is always a resource at hand to offer guidance. At InfoSec Institute, we feel CTFs are a tremendous way to ensure you leave the course with the skills needed to perform Web App Pen Tests at work after the course is completed.
IACRB Certified Web App Penetration Tester
- All certifications offered by the IACRB are composed of a traditional multiple choice exam, as well as a hands-on practical exam.
- The goal of this two step WAPT process is to determine if the web app pen testing certification candidate possesses the required knowledge of theories and concepts described above. Additionally, the second step is designed to rigorously test the ability of the candidate to perform job relevant, hands-on technical skills related to information assurance.
