Penetration Testing Training Day

Sponsored by Information Risk Management Plc (IRM)

 

Do you think you have the skills to work as a white hat hacker? Does the idea of penetration testing applications and infrastructure and learning the latest techniques for breaking into systems seem to be your ideal career? Are you able to describe complex technical issues to non-technical managerial staff without using complex technical terms?


If you've been working as a developer, in infrastructure or application support, and maybe already know the difference between nmap, metasploit and sql injection, then this could be the event for you!

Time: Registration 09:00 for 09:30 start
End 18:00 approx
Venue: BCS London offices (map and directions)
Cost: £55 + VAT (limited to 30 places)
