Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
EC-Council has teamed up with partner Quest Institute of Knowledge (QUIK) India to produce the next generation of advanced web application security experts. Web application security and the associated security standards have been leading concerns in the information security industry for at least a decade because of the frequency and publicity of websites, web applications, and web services hacks. Web applications tend to be public facing tools and frequently are the portal through which a client’s financial or other confidential information will be entered. When web applications are compromised and client data is gathered, the breached company faces reputational loss, financial implications, and an erosion of public trust.
Although this is a huge problem plaguing businesses and governments alike, there is a dearth in trained, skilled, and experienced web application programmers and architects well versed in security. Due to this gap between supply and demand of professionals with advanced web application security skills, EC-Council and QUIK worked together to bring to India unique hands-on and highly technical security training classes aimed at increasing the quality of web application programing and security produced by India’s programming and security professionals.
The program, called the Center for Advanced Security Training (CAST), contains EC-Council’s most technically challenging series of classes especially tailored for training web application security experts. The CAST program focuses on combating not only the most complex vulnerabilities but also on proactively mitigating zero day exploits. QUIK is the exclusive EC-Council Partner offering the CAST class “Advanced Application Security” across India.
Titles in the CAST series include Advanced Penetration Testing, Advanced Mobile Hacking & Forensics, Hacking and Hardening your Corporate Web Application, A Developer Perspective; Advanced Network Defense; Securing Windows Infrastructure; Designing and Implementing Cloud Security; and Advanced SQLi Attacks and Countermeasures.
