Course description

The fundamentals of security testing including analyzing the design, running automated scanners and looking for known vulnerabilities. However, many security testing approaches don’t even do all of this. Furthermore, the most important vulnerabilities aren’t discovered until the advanced tactics: abuse functionality, chain exploits and seek the unknown unknowns. You’ll learn what all of these entail and how to think differently about your approach to security testing.
