If you don't actively attack risks, they will actively attack you. Security is never comprehensive but can be vastly improved with risk-oriented testing. This implies an optimized mix of test strategies and suitable tools. Risk-oriented security with dedicated test methods and appropriate tools is the call of the day. Security test must start with static code analysis, proceed with unit test and further advance with dedicated methods such as fuzzing and robustness tests up to the level of penetration testing (Pen-Test). This workshop will briefly introduce to risk-oriented security engineering and then dive into appropriate test methods and tools.
Like all verification and validation methods, cybersecurity testing needs experience to select the best methods, determine test end criteria and a lean yet effective regression strategy capable for continuous integration and deliveries. Often we see companies that test components and their interfaces, while overlooking security threats in networking and services. For that matter we have enriched the training with hands-on experiences from our security consulting projects. Participants are invited to actively engage with their questions.
Additional bonus: Attendees receive our current white papers on cybersecurity as PDF.
