NEXT MEETUP | Web App Penetration Testing with Burp Suite

Tuesday, July 30, 2019, | 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

LOCATION: The Intellectual Point Office

What is Burp Suite you ask? Burp Suite is a Java-based Web Penetration Testing framework. It has become an industry standard suite of tools used by information security professionals. Burp Suite helps you identify vulnerabilities and verify attack vectors that are affecting web applications.

This overview will utilize hands-on training with Burp Suite and OWASP Juice Shop to teach web application penetration testing (WAPT) fundamentals. We will demonstrate how to use Burp Suite to manually and automatically identify and validate common web app security issues, with a focus on covering the OWASP Top 10 application security risks (2017 list). By the end of the meetup, attendees will have a better idea of how to use Burp Suite and the importance of secure coding for web applications.
