Discover Web Application Security with EC-Council’s WAHS course

Application security has become a necessity with an increasing number of companies looking to develop their own apps, a market worth USD 6.38 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 15.76 billion by 2026.

Therefore, the vulnerabilities and risks associated with these applications have also deeply risen. Application security includes measures taken to improve the security of an application and reduce those vulnerabilities, usually by finding, fixing, and preventing security breaches. Such security vulnerabilities are revealed using different techniques at different stages of the application life cycle (e.g. design, development, deployment, upgrade, maintenance).

To address this issue, EC-Council offers a Web Application Hacking and Security program which is a self-study specialization certification that enables the cybersecurity workforce to learn, hack, test, and secure web applications from existing and emerging security threats in the industry verticals.

About the WAHS training program

The Web Application Hacking and Security program leads to a fully online, remotely proctored practical exam that challenges candidates through a 6-hour performance-based, hands-on exam.

EC-Council’s WAHS course allows you to learn in a practical environment, with challenges designed for all levels, via the Break-the-Code (Cyber Range) platform. You will encounter security misconfigurations, SQL injection vulnerabilities, directory browsing vulnerabilities, enumeration vulnerabilities, and opportunities to escalate privileges and gain access to privileged information. Each section of Break-the-Code brings progressively more difficult challenges. There are always multiple paths to take, but few will get you the prize and move up the leader board.

WAHS exam assesses candidates’ skills on a broad spectrum of OWASP Top-10 web application vulnerabilities and attack vectors, in real life stressful scenario. The assessment requires a deep understanding of various web application technologies, their inherent and acquired vulnerabilities, and manual exploitation techniques.

WAHS benefits include

  • 100% self-study and hands-on
  • Complete walkthrough instructions & Challenge Based Environment
  • Break the code (Cyber Range)
  • 14 Web Application Hacking challenges
  • 4 levels of complexity to “Covering 18 Attack Vectors”
  • Comprehensive Knowledge on OWASP Top 10
  • Real-time leaderboard to Track Progress
  • Latest Techniques, Tricks and Tools

If you are tasked with implementing, managing, or protecting web applications or a cyber/tech professional who is interested in learning or recommending mitigation methods to various web security issues and want a pure hands-on program, then this is the course you have been waiting for.
