Who is this course for?
For participants who have completed the Computest 'introduction to security testing' course. If they have not completed this course, then at least basic knowledge of security testing is essential. Ideally, they should also have some experience with a debugging proxy.
The participant must have a licence for Burp Suite.
After this course, participants will be able to use Burp themselves and detect vulnerabilities using the tool, so ensuring fewer security issues in applications they build themselves.
Price, dates and location
The training lasts 1 day and costs 950 euros per person.
We provide a pleasant and relaxed learning environment. The courses are held at the Computest office. We have a beautiful space available for this purpose with a roof terrace, and we also serve a delicious lunch. The training is also available in-company and can also be delivered at the customer location.
Programme of the Burp Suite Professional course
The design of the 1-day course is as follows:
- Setting up the laptops, tooling and important configuration settings.
- Covering the most important components of Burp, based on challenges. Participants get to use Burp in practice themselves on vulnerable websites.
- After the basic components, various tips and tricks are covered that you can use to apply Burp to specific situations and specific vulnerabilities. With the help of exercises, participants can use Burp in practice on vulnerable websites.
- Mobile apps. How do you use Burp to test mobile apps?
Training by our hackers
The most important thing that sets our courses apart is that they are taught by our own ethical hackers with programming knowledge. Our trainers are first and foremost passionate hackers who apply their skills to complex security projects on a daily basis. And who better to train a developer than a hacker?
Thanks to the enthusiasm with which they communicate their knowledge and vividly illustrate it with examples and practical situations, they are valued as trainers and guest speakers. Our trainers work at and are educated to higher vocational/university level and are selected for their good communication and social skills.
Our vision of learning
We strongly believe in ‘learning by doing’. At Computest, about 75% of the Burp Suite course consists of hands-on training.
With the help of lots of interaction and various challenges, the participants get to work themselves. Our trainers supervise them closely during the assignments and answer questions so that they can work independently in practice.
Daan Keuper is responsible for the overall quality of our training. He is a top hacker; he has finished third in global hacking competitions three times and made the news by finding vulnerabilities in the iPhone and in a passenger vehicle. He also has over 10 years of experience in delivering security and other training courses for technical and non-technical participants.
Daan develops the customised courses, provides the teaching materials and constantly keeps them up to date. He delivers courses himself and is also responsible for selecting, training and supervising other trainers. Daan regularly sits in on courses to monitor their quality and the professionalism of the trainers and to provide guidance where necessary. We also ask our participants for feedback after each course by means of an anonymous tool. This feedback is discussed by Daan and the trainers in order to further improve our courses.
Tailor-made courses are always an option – for large or small groups. Thanks to the broad knowledge we have in-house, we can provide courses for all kinds of target groups and to a very high technical standard. Courses can also be focused on a particular topic, for example mobile apps.
As such, you will always be able to find an appropriate course or have one tailored to your needs. Please contact us to discuss the options.
