Training is an important part of the secure development lifecycle. It’s something EVERY security conscious organization should be engaged in. But getting good training that is relevant to your developers and testers, as well as security engineers and researchers is hard to find. That’s why I developed a full two day course called “Application Security: for Hackers and Developers”. In the course I cover the 4 pillars of application security: Code auditing, Fuzzing, Reverse Engineering, and Exploit Development. 5 years ago when I realized there was no course that taught all 4 subjects in a balanced and deeply technical manner, I resolved to create one.
Over the last 4 years, I have offered the course to hundreds of students, who afterwards were equipped and energized to face their security threats and research goals. To give people a small taste of this course, I’ve partnered with BlackHat to offer a free 35min webinar on application security. The link to join the web training is here: https://www.blackhat.com/html/webcast/06192014-appsec-overview-deep-dive-and-trends.html The event happens on June 19th, 2014.
I hope you’ll join us for the webcast, and perhaps I’ll see you in Las Vegas for the next offering of the full, hands-on course:
The training is Aug 2-3 or Aug 4-5, 2014. Sign up, and keep securing your code!
