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. You’ll see best practices for identifying critical web application vulnerabilities, getting data for efficient risk mitigation, and understanding the business implications of technical exposures.
The Caught in the Web webcast series will cover topics including:
• Using practical threat analysis to identify where your organization is exposed
• Comparing web application penetration testing to “traditional” penetration testing
• In-depth assessment techniques including SQL injection, XSS, CSRF, etc.
• Filtering techniques for identifying vulnerabilities requiring immediate remediation
• Comparing manual penetration testing to automated tools
• Pitfalls to avoid when conducting web app security assessments
You’ll also learn how to connect technical issues identified during testing with underlying business risks – enabling you to effectively communicate and leverage the benefits of proactive, real-world security testing throughout your organization.

Core really brings out the big names. Shon is famous, and Wayne Burke is the creator of Mile2 CPTS. They regularly schedule the Inguardians crew, and i heard that they will be in force bringing BIG names to the SANS pentesting summit this year.
When I was at SANS Vegas they bought the whole conference pizza after Ed’s talk, and then opened the bar. That was after they did a lunch and learn session in the afternoon!
Excited to see this one =)
