The Secarma testing team regularly run hands-on security training courses across the UK and remotely. Our Hacking and Defending Web Apps sessions allow you to get practical experience breaking web applications, before teaching you how to build them in a more resilient way.

Our hands-on sessions teach candidates about web application security vulnerabilities by taking them step by step them through the process of a penetration test.

Who is it for?

Who is it for?

Our Hacking and Defending Web Apps course is designed to teach web application developers the tools and techniques we use when targeting web apps during real world penetration tests. We’ll also review all of the findings from the session and give guidance on remediation, detailing how web apps could be hardened to make exploitation action more difficult and attack detection easier.

It’s also a useful course for those looking to break into Penetration Testing who want a first step on the journey.

How can we help?

How can we help?

Software developers often focus on building an application and making it functional. They’re often tied to strict deadlines and therefore, ensuring everything is secure is sometimes not the first priority.

Additionally, many security flaws can be subtle or difficult to spot if you’re not well versed in common vulnerability types and testing methods.

By using the ‘hackers’ point-of-view throughout the training course we allow those interested in developing a security testing capability to get started on that journey.

This course steps you through the common phases of a Web Application Penetration Test and allows you to gain an understanding of how hackers hack.

Mapping & Intelligence Gathering
Before the engagement begins, we will map the attack
surface to discover alive hosts, services, and versions.
As well as mapping application functionality

Vulnerability Discovery
We’ll demonstrate methods of finding and confirming
vulnerabilities to minimise false positives being

Proof of Concept & Confirmation
Where vulnerabilities are discovered a proof of concept
exploit will be created to demonstrate the potential
business risk. This ensures that false positives are
removed by manually confirming and demonstrating all
discovered vulnerabilities.

Exploitation                                                                                                                      Exploitation involves discovering weaknesses
within exposed applications and leveraging those
weaknesses to demonstrate as much business risk as
