5 Best Practices for Web Application Security

Offensive Security

When it comes to web application security, there are many measures you can implement to reduce the chances of an intruder stealing sensitive data, injecting malware into a webpage, or public defacement. As more and more organizations transition their business operations to web applications, security in the development process can no longer be an afterthought. Whether it’s a code injection, privilege escalation, DDoS attack, or a vulnerable element, bad actors are constantly looking for creative ways to manipulate exploits for personal gain.

We’ve rounded up our top five (5) best practices to help you fortify your application security.

OSCP/OSCE/OSWP Review

Offensive Security

It’s no secret that Offensive Security offers some of the best technical training in the information security field. Their brand has become synonymous with penetration testing in the eyes of most tech recruiters on LinkedIn.

Some of the most common questions I get on LinkedIn are related to the OSCP/OSCE/OSWP certifications. Some people even go as far as asking for solutions to their exam machines. Sorry, you won’t be finding anything like that here (TRY HARDER). I will however offer an honest review and offer some tips to help you decide if you are ready to take the plunge into any of these 3 awesome courses!

OSCP Cheating

Cheating Attempts and the OSCP

Offensive Security

Last week, an individual started to release solutions to certain challenges in the OSCP certification exam. This led to some discussion on Twitter and made it clear to us that there is a fair amount of misunderstanding about what’s on the exam, how we catch cheaters, how many people attempt to cheat, and what happens when they are discovered. In this post, we would like to shine some light on our certification process.

Offensive Security Appoints Ning Wang as CEO to Lead Organization’s Next Stage of Growth

Offensive Security

Today we all constantly read about data breaches that could have been prevented if the impacted organization had just done what they were supposed to do. The unfortunate reality is that cyberattacks are now a matter of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ for the average enterprise. Yet the landscape is changing and protecting your environment is actually getting more challenging not less.

Cyber adversaries are more organized and talented than ever, so an effective cyber defense now requires more than just following the right processes. Today’s enterprises need defenders who perform their jobs with an adversarial mindset. While this need is becoming more acute every day, we are also presently in the midst of an enormous cybersecurity skills shortage. These two forces are diametrically opposed and there is only one way toward resolution – practical security training.

This being the case, I couldn’t be happier to join Offensive Security as the company’s next CEO.

Proctoring OSCP Exams

Offensive Security Online Exam Proctoring

Offensive Security

When we started out with our online training courses over 12 years ago, we made hard choices about the nature of our courses and certifications. We went against the grain, against the common certification standards, and came up with a unique certification model in the field – “Hands-on, practical certification”. Twelve years later, these choices have paid off. The industry as a whole has realized that most of the multiple choice, technical certifications do not necessarily guarantee a candidate’s technical level…and for many in the offensive security field, the OSCP has turned into a golden industry standard. This has been wonderful for certification holders as they find themselves actively recruited by employers due to the fact that they have proven themselves as being able to stand up to the stress of a hard, 24-hour exam – and still deliver a quality report.

The Synology Improbability
