Testers looking for a foundation of security testing


  • The most common security vulnerabilities (OWASP top 10)
  • How to find these common security vulnerabilities
  • Help your team design and develop secure products
  • Types of security test tooling and what they do

Security testing can feel like a daunting task. It’s a test specialty, and often an afterthought. Testers and test automation engineers won’t replace security testers but can prevent many of the most common security vulnerabilities.

Learn about the most common security vulnerabilities according to the OWASP top 10. How do these common vulnerabilities work and why do bad actors want to exploit them?

Learn to design applications that an unskilled bad actor can't crack. Support your team in making the right decisions throughout the application life cycle.

And, of course, testing the security of applications. Learn how to security-test forms, find known vulnerabilities in dependencies, test API authorization, and more.

To be able to do all these things you need knowledge about common vulnerabilities and the various types of tools that can detect them. In this talk you’ll learn about these tools and when to use them.
