Overview

On this accelerated GIAC Web Application Defender (GWEB) course, you’ll gain the security knowledge and skills needed to secure web applications and their errors that lead to security problems.

In just 5 days, you’ll gain experience using tools to detect and prevent input validation flaws, cross-site scripting (XSS), and SQL injection as well as an in-depth understanding of authentication, access control, and session management, their weaknesses, and how they are best defended. You’ll also build knowledge in:

  • AJAX Technologies and security strategies
  • Encryption and protecting sensitive data
  • Modern Application Framework issues

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the GIAC Web Application Defender exam, and achieve your GWEB certification. Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to courseware, learn from certified instructors and train in a distraction-free environment.

Audience

This course would be suitable for:

  • Application developers
  • Application security analysts or managers
  • Application architects
  • Penetration testers who are interested in learning about defensive strategies
  • Security professionals who are interested in learning about web application security
  • Auditors who need to understand defensive mechanisms in web applications

  2. You'll be certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs

"Firebrand are well organised and their facilities, accommodation and training rooms are more than fit for purpose. The all-inclusive course represents good value and I would not hesitate to recommend to a friend or colleague, and have already done so!"
P.J., EDF Energy. (26/4/2021 (Monday) to 30/4/2021 (Friday))

"I find courses can be stressful. - Find the place, get there and home each day, Firebrand have one requirement - find their facility. From that point on they will handle all your needs completely. Taking that extra work away from you allows you to learn more freely than in other settings. They have high-quality management staff and instructors. They cover a wide range of valuable course. I've used them at least 6 times now and always look at their website first if an opportunity for training comes up through my employer."
Wayne Thompson, United Utilities. (26/4/2021 (Monday) to 30/4/2021 (Friday))

"Highly recommended. I completed the GICSP training, which Im confident has put me in a good place to take the exam. The instructor was very knowledgeable and delivered the training in a straightforward manner that was easy to digest. The environment was open and supported my many questions. I found Firebrand pleasant to work with, quick to respond, and wouldnt hesitate to use again."
