Secure Coding for Java (three-day training)

This three-day instructor-led Secure Coding for Java course provides developers with practical guidance for developing Java programs that are robust and secure. Material in this presentation was derived from the Addison-Wesley book The CERT Oracle Secure Coding Standard for Java and is supported by the Secure Coding Rules for Java Live Lessons videos. Participants should come away from the course with a working knowledge of common programming errors that lead to software vulnerabilities, how these errors can be exploited, and effective mitigation strategies for preventing the introduction of these errors.

OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities – discover, exploit, remediate (one-day training)

The overall objective of this workshop is to increase the participants’ awareness on the most common web application vulnerabilities and their associated risks. We will discuss about each type of vulnerability described in the OWASP Top 10 project and will teach participants manual discovery and exploitation techniques. Furthermore, a set of useful security testing tools will be introduced during the workshop.
