HackLabs: Web Application Penetration Testing Course

HackLabs: Web Application Penetration Testing (Three day course) is our course offering intensive, hands-on training in Web Application Penetration Testing.

Participants will learn how hackers perform Web Application Attacks and how to remediate common vulnerabilities. Participants will learn how hackers can gain access to an organisations web application and the data they hold.

The intent of this course is to assist organisations in arming front line staff with the approach, the latest tools and techniques that attackers utilise so that they can better secure there organisations applications.

HackLabs are able to indicate the key areas that the team see day in day out as they are performing and researching the latest attack techniques to utilise in penetration testing for our client base, during the work we perform for them.

This course will provide an overview of: 

• Which tools to use, 

• How to use the tools, and

• The methodology behind security testing.
