Security awareness for Web developers


dartalis proposes a course based on the well-known Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) which is a worldwide free and open community focused on improving the security of application software. Additionally, concrete attacks will be analyzed during workshops to show what really happens and how it can be prevented. For more in-depth security knowledge on a specific development language, dartalis also offers a Secure Development Course.
