Pentesting iOS Apps Foundation - Virtual

Are your app-users tired of the cheaters? Do you build commercial apps that involve user-data? Or finance? Then this one-day training is for you!

This one-day training teaches you how to properly secure your connection and local data. More importantly, you will learn how to check the security of your application. This unique combination of building and validating will allow you to stand out as a professional! On top of that, we will introduce you to various tools and frameworks to help you out. The training is taught in English or Dutch. During the training, you will pair up with other attendees to maximize your learning experience.
