What our Customers Say
"I found the course really interesting and I thought it had a great theory/practical balance. I feel like I’ve definitely come away with a much-improved understanding of what sort of things I need to be considering when architecting and developing new applications. Thanks for sharing that knowledge with us."

Course Details
Over the three days you will learn how hackers analyse and probe applications to identify and exploit vulnerabilities. You will be taught to recognise and avoid weaknesses and have ample opportunity to ask questions and learn from a software security specialist.
