7Safe provides Level 7 (of 8) nationally recognised qualifications on the National Qualifications Framework.

The course

This 2-day web application ethical hacking course covers the fundamentals of the industry-recognised OWASP Top Ten – to quote OWASP: “the ten most critical web application security risks”. You will have access to a functional ASP.NET and PHP application through which theory is reinforced by way of practical exercises. The course demonstrates hacking techniques - there’s no better way to understand attacks than by doing them yourself - but this is always done with defence in mind and countermeasures are taught throughout. Knowledge of, and protection against, the OWASP Top Ten is a core requirement of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and therefore CSTP is ideally suited to web developers and QSAs as well as IT security officers and budding penetration testers.

Delegates who successfully complete the exam included at the end will be awarded the CSTP qualification. Completion of CSTP satisfies the prerequisites for 7Safe’s CAST course (advanced web application security). CSTP is accredited by CREST and is an excellent foundation towards the CREST Registered Penetration Tester examination, along with CSTA and CWSA.

CSTP is also accredited by IISP, enabling you to build knowledge, competency and gain hands-on experience in areas of the Institute’s Skills Framework where you may have gaps.
