With the ever-increasing numbers of security breaches, both human and machine-based, significantly more understanding is required from testers to ensure that the proper quality assurance measures are in place for assuring the security of IT systems.
Many courses about security testing concentrate solely on the very technical hacking side of things, which is great, but it is not the whole picture. This course is aimed at the softer-side of security testing and addresses the following key elements and how we manage them from a testing perspective through the life cycle from inception to delivery, including:
- Human lapses
- Malicious insiders
- Malicious outsiders
- Lack of adequate defences and testing of the defences that are in place
- Defective software in general
- A limited view of security and testing
- Placing too much trust in technology
- Security is an afterthought in most development projects
- Lack of awareness at the executive level. Everybody knows cybersecurity is a problem, but very few people know how to deal with the risks and challenges.
Who is it for?
The ISTQB Advanced Security course is for Technical Testers, Security Testers, Security Co-ordinators and Managers, plus testers and test managers who are serious about including security aspects into their test plans or who want to specialise.
What are the benefits of the ISTQB Advanced Security Tester Qualification?
Security of our systems is a real big deal for us all, but how to test they are secure is a bit of a problem. Randy Rice security test expert will talk you through the Advanced Security Tester training course and the benefits it will bring:
“I thought ISTQB Advanced Security Tester was an excellent course that covered the syllabus well and in an interesting and engaging way. Having one of the authors of the ISTQB syllabus (Randall Rice) present the training content that he personally developed was a great bonus of course, and his enthusiasm for the topic was refreshing. The syllabus and course are a good bridge between the worlds of testing (as taught by ISTQB) and the technical world of penetration testing, without going in to the depths required by a pure security qualification like CISSP. I would certainly be looking to put other people through the course in the future”Chris Jones, Senior Managing Consultant, IBM
