OWASP Portland Chapter, free to join, open to all. We meet to discuss & demonstrate web and browser-based vulnerabilities, tools & solutions. More information about OWASP Portland can be found at https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Portland .
Join PDX OWASP for a in person event sponsored by NetSpi.
Introduction to Burp Suite, the differences between the Community (free) and Pro Editions, and the major tools and features it provides. We will be testing against OWASP’s Juice Shop that will be hosted in the cloud, so participants will be able to get some hands-on experience. Slides of the presentation will be provided, as well as links to resources to continue learning.
I started with NetSPI this past January in the NetSPI U program, getting a crash course in Web Application testing for 6 months, and currently work as a Security Consultant testing Web Applications for various clients.
During the pandemic I upskilled in several ways. I used TryHackMe, HackTheBox, and TCM to learn and practice new skills. I also found ways to add developing my cyber security skillset to my development plan at work, and this was how I was able to participate in a Vuln Hub hacking group that was hosted by Nike’s Red Team when I was a contractor there. They run it like a book club for hackers, picking a new vuln box every two weeks, show newcomers the ropes, and work on more advanced topics depending on the box that is selected. I also have an associate degree in Computer Information Systems and do my share of hacking on my own time. I am currently learning how to deconstruct, tweak, and recompile Android apps, and how to breach and move laterally within the Active Directory environment.
There are many free or reasonably priced Cyber Security resources available, and I am happy to share what I know of them.
