Revising an Important Software Testing Course

You would think after writing over 60 software testing courses, I would finally get tired, get bored or something. Yet, new topics interest me, so I keep going.

Another challenge is maintaining all this courseware. Thankfully, I have some friends like Tom Staab and Tauhida Parveen for their help in this effort.

The course we are revising is Security Testing for the Enterprise and the Web. The need has never been greater for security testing, and so many organizations place too much trust in their security policies and procedures. The bad guys don't give a rip about policies and procedures. They are out to exploit software defects to give them greater leverage.

As with any software testing course, the key is application. So, we are revising this course with updated examples and exercises using recent exploits as examples.

We'll have it ready soon, so stay tuned for details.
