Hey Security Professionals,
Welcome to this course on “Web Pentesting – OWASP Top 10 2017” by ENCIPHERS. OWASP released the latest version of their Top 10 web application security vulnerabilities last year. In this course, we will go through each one of them in much details providing you with the tools and resources you will need later for better understanding.
Benefits of taking this course:
Security is the root of everything in the 21st century. There is not a single company be it a national bank, or an e-commerce or a web company who can take security lightly. In the light of these matters, this course will be useful to all of you. Now let me tell you how?
1. Are you already an experienced security professional?
This course can then be useful for brushing up on all the topics and if you didn’t get time to know about the new 10, then a course like this is a gem in itself, telling you everything in a priority-wise sequential order. There are no hard and fast rules that you need to be in the web application security field to learn about these topics. These topics are general and any security analyst or penetration tester should know about them.
2. Are you a developer or in any other field?
Do you want to change jobs and introduce yourself to the security field? We have seen so many people like that and this is the perfect course for that. There is a practical demonstration for most of the vulnerabilities and you will be learning more about the “Pentester’s favorite tool” i.e. Burpsuite.
Not only this, even if you are in a software or web development field, you do need to learn about these things, because then only will you know what “Secure Coding” is. To write your code in such manner that these vulnerabilities won’t be there in the application is basically called “Secure Coding”. So actually, learning these will make you understand what not to do and as a result, you will be more assured that your application will be less vulnerable to any hacker’s attacks.
3. The last and most common one. Are you a newbie in this so-called “Security” field and don’t know where to start?
Yes, we have met many guys and also been asked by several about getting in this field. Security field is too diverse on its own. Most of the guys in our company come from a different technical background and they have already shared how difficult it is to learn about security as a newcomer. You don’t know about the resources, about any dedicated sites, video channels where you can learn live about pentesting and bug bounties. So we have tried our utmost to make these videos as easy as they can be and to the point. If you know about the vulnerabilities, you will also get the different resources and different tools and from there you will start learning each new thing daily.
So these all are the possible reasons we believe that this course is made for you. It doesn’t matter if you are in a college or have 3 years experience in the professional field. If you know the term “Security” and want to learn something new, then YES, this course is for you.:)
