Core Security is pleased to invite you to a complimentary webcast, Part I of “Caught in the Web: Best Practices for Effective Web App Security Assessments,” hosted by Shon Harris of Logical Security, and Wayne Burke & Benjamin Böck of SecureIA.

The webcast series will draw from SecureIA’s upcoming “IA Web Penetration Testing 101” course and present tips for assessing your web infrastructure against the most prevalent online threats today.
