I’m proud to be teaching SANS Security 542 here in Cleveland through the SANS Mentor Program beginning in August. ┬áThe SANS Mentor Program allows you to save thousands on your training budget and still experience live SANS training on the GWAPT classes – live training without traveling!


Security 542: Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking
Start date: Thursday August 23, class will run over 10 weeks, 6:30-8:30pm
Details and tuition visit:

Where: SecureState
23340 Miles Road
Cleveland, OH 44128

This local course will be offered in a multi-week format via the Mentor Program. Each week I will answer questions and assist you with hands on labs and exercises during the class. Mentor courses give you the opportunity to participate in SANS training without the expense and inconvenience of travel or being out of the office during the workday.

An outline of the class is as follows:

– Learn an attack methodology and how the pen-tester uses JavaScript within the test
– Study the art of reconnaissance, specifically targeted to Web applications.
– Start the discovery phase with a focus on application/server-side discovery.
– Flash objects and Java applets.
– Exploitation

The class wraps up with a Capture the Flag event where the students will be able to use the methodology and techniques explored during class to find and exploit the vulnerabilities within an intranet site.

I hope you can join me in August and earn your GWAPT Certification in 2012!
