Description

OVERVIEW

With the ever-increasing numbers of security breaches, both human and machine-based, significantly more understanding is required from testers to ensure that the proper quality assurance measures are in place for assuring the security of IT systems.

Many courses about security testing concentrate solely on the very technical hacking side of things, which is great, but it is not the whole picture. This course is aimed at the softer-side of security testing and addresses the following key elements and how we manage them from a testing perspective through the life cycle from inception to delivery, including:

OVERVIEW

With the ever-increasing numbers of security breaches, both human and machine-based, significantly more understanding is required from testers to ensure that the proper quality assurance measures are in place for assuring the security of IT systems.

Many courses about security testing concentrate solely on the very technical hacking side of things, which is great, but it is not the whole picture. This course is aimed at the softer-side of security testing and addresses the following key elements and how we manage them from a testing perspective through the life cycle from inception to delivery, including:

  • Human lapses
  • Malicious insiders
  • Malicious outsiders
  • Lack of adequate defences and testing of the defences that are in place
  • Defective software in general
  • A limited view of security and testing
  • Placing too much trust in technology
  • Security is an afterthought in most development projects
  • Lack of awareness at the executive level. Everybody knows cybersecurity is a problem, but very few people know how to deal with the risks and challenges.
