Security Innovation Leading Mobile Training Session at Black Hat USA 2017

June 6, 2017 – Security Innovation, a leader in software security assessment and consulting services, announced today its upcoming participation in a mobile security training session at Black Hat USA, to be held on July 22-25 in Las Vegas, NV.

Dinesh Shetty, Senior Manager and Mobile Center of Excellence Lead, Security Innovation, will be lead instructor for the session entitled “Offensive Mobile Application Exploitation.”  In this course, Shetty along with Prateek Gianchandani from Cognosec, will explain and give hands-on demonstrations of the application vulnerabilities for the latest jailbroken version of iOS and Android. This session is targeted at security professionals and mobile developers who are interested in learning about effective mobile application security.  

The biggest issue I have with traditional conference trainings has been the lack of a practical, hands-on approach toward testing vulnerabilities,” said Shetty. “With this in mind, we have revamped our Practical Android and iOS course - sold out at past conferences - to include an interactive component for each vulnerability. Gone are the days of looking at instructions on bland PowerPoint slides and wondering if it will actually work.”
