Security from Testers Perspective

Security is an increasingly important factor for all organizations, and for this reason Penetration Tests are executed with specialized security teams, who have specific knowledge about security, but don’t always know the business rules.

There is a set of vulnerabilities that can be detected only if we understand the business logic and how the system operates. This is part of the knowledge that Testers already have, so, applying some techniques focused on the business logic, Testers could design and execute different tests and contribute to the security of the application from the beginning of the project.

In this session Guillermo will share techniques and concepts through real examples, which will allow Testers to detect security problems in early stages of the projects increasing the security of the application.

Session Takeaways:

  • Most important security risks according to OWASP Top 10.
  • Contribute to the security of the system from the role of the functional tester.
  • Achieve greater awareness of the importance of security in systems.
  • Understand how hackers use different features of our application to obtain valuable information.
  • Think from an attacker perspective.
