|T5. Leveraging OWASP Tools and Documents to Secure Your Enterprise|
|Apart from OWASP's Top 10, most OWASP projects are not widely used and understood. In most cases this is not due to lack of quality and usefulness of these Document & Tool projects, but due to a lack of understanding of where they fit in an Enterprise's security ecosystem or in the Web Application Development Lifecycle (WADL). This course aims to change that by providing detailed presentations of the most mature and enterprise ready OWASP projects together with practical examples of how to use them. Read more here!|
|T6. Open Source ModSecurity Training|
|ModSecurity is currently the most widely deployed web application firewall (WAF) product. This two-day class is for those people who want to learn how to build, deploy, and use ModSecurity in the most effective manner. The course will cover the open source ModSecurity Console, which helps manage alerts on suspicious web activity targeting your web servers. The course also provides an in-depth look at the extremely powerful ModSecurity Rules Language. Read more here!|
