During our web application security
The One Month web security course is designed as an introduction to security, so it is perfect for a developer of any skill level with:
Web Security professionals help companies protect against attacks by reviewing applications for security weaknesses, including code reviews and penetration testing (hacking), as well as working with developers to understand common attacks and insecure coding practices. They also work with operations teams to ensure ongoing systems are protected and help monitor and analyze suspicious network traffic.
I’d teach you the most common hacking tool, a web proxy, how to use it, and how you can debug and hack into websites. I’d provide a high level view of the most common web application attacks, how to find them, and how to fix them. With your new hacking skills, you will find it hard to stop after just 60 minutes because the way you look at web sites will have been forever changed.
No one wants to be responsible for code that fails to work properly, especially if the code you write exposes a security hole and leads to your company or your customers being hacked. Anything running on the internet is constantly being probed and tested by hackers. Without understanding the basics of security, it’s just a matter of time before your code is broken. Understanding the fundamentals of security will give you a deeper insight into how different technology stacks work, making you a better developer and a more valuable resource to businesses. Building your skills through web security courses will help you push your career to the next level and distinguish you from the millions of other rails developers in the world.
