Advanced Web Threats

Cyber Resilience Lab @ European Software Institute - Center Eastern Europe

The course intends to pick where “Top 10” left off – namely to deepen the understanding of the top vulnerabilities and to broaden the scope of vulnerabilities that are discussed. The course includes live demos of attacks, exercises in detecting and leveraging threats, examples of weak and vulnerable code and the process of repairing it and fixing vulnerabilities, mitigation tactics, developer-specific best practices and discussions on how not to write vulnerable code in the process of daily work. The course is mostly technical and not organizational. The advanced course will additionally include exercises in which participants in turn attempt to fix and attack particular implementations. A heavier focus will be placed on labs.

Description

The course includes live demos of attacks, exercises in detecting and leveraging threats, examples of weak and vulnerable code and the process of repairing it and fixing vulnerabilities, mitigation tactics, developer-specific best practices and discussions on how not to write vulnerable code in the process of daily work. The course is mostly technical and not organizational.
The advanced course will additionally include exercises in which participants in turn attempt to fix and attack particular implementations. A heavier focus will be placed on labs.

The goal of this course is to prepare developers for dealing with real-world sophisticated attacks, so they can properly design and code in order to deliver a resilient and secure product.
