Event description

Description

Level: Intermediate

Duration: Full Day

Trainer: Gavin Porter (Catalyst IT)

Cost: $500+GST ($575)

Brief

This course was developed to meet a government client requirement for all development staff to be trained on the principles of secure web development. It evolved into a full day course that draws upon the Australian Government and New Zealand Information Security Manuals and the OWASP Top Ten with practical exercises.

The course has evolved over the last few years and has been presented to staff and customers across three countries.

This is not a course that covers exploitation and is not aimed at penetration testers. The course is aimed at software developers and testers with a reasonable understanding of web technologies. It aims to impart knowledge of good development principles and the common OWASP security issues to search for when testers, or to avoid when developing. The course is focussed on explaining the security vulnerabilities and how to prevent them.

The course is very useful for anyone developing a web application that needs to demonstrate compliance against a security standard such as PCI DSS or NZISM. For other web applications, such knowledge is good practice to help organisations produce secure websites.


Learnings

Participants will finish the day knowing what common security vulnerabilities, such as SQL injection, XSS and CSRF are and how to avoid them.


About the Trainer

Gavin is currently the Security Manager at Catalyst IT. He has been involved in security for 20 years in a variety of roles including web development, penetrating testing and forensics. He created this course to meet customer requirements for Catalyst staff to be suitably training on secure coding and has since also presented it to external clients.

Gavin is also the project champion for an open source solution to meet the OWASP Top Ten 2013 A9 issue about using components within known vulnerabilities. This project will be publicly launched in time for CHCon 17.
