Training: Hunting The White Whale – Offensive Application Pentesting

Instructor: Kizz Myanthia

This course will introduce the attendees to the concepts of Information Security, the security issues that plague all applications today, learn how to create an attack strategy, and execute against the problem. This course will encompass both common and easily exploitable vulnerabilities and the more advanced or custom exploits and techniques that attackers use in the real world. We will discuss what motivates an attacker, what the types of mindsets are, and what tools they will most likely use. “The White Whale” will give the attendee an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of Information and Application security through hands on training and QA Lecture. We will work to understand both application and host vulnerabilities and exploits. This class will not only guide a novice tester or admin into the mindset of an attacker, but will give the advanced tester a deeper understanding of IS and application security issues and how to detect, attack, and defend against them.

All students will leave with an in-depth understanding of not only why and how these vulnerabilities are found, but also all of the tools and techniques needed to execute them.
