Short summary

During the HackYourself First – Mobile Security training by DevOn, attendees enjoy a playful way of exploring vulnerabilities based on the OWASP top 10. We will go through the top 10, the theory that applies to it and then let participants hack it. After the offensive approach, participants will discover how to apply defense and make sure they secure their mobile applications.

Both iOS and Android will be covered, however the practical parts will be mostly Android, as we will not have access to jailbroken devices. Keep in mind an approximate 20 – 80 % iOS vs. Android.

How can I test my mobile applications for security so that security bugs can be fixed?

Which languages do you offer your courses in?

Most of our courses are available in both English and Dutch. We have a selection of training courses which are only available in English, which will be on that training page. Our rule of thumb for courses in the Netherlands is – the course is in English unless everybody speaks Dutch, then the course is in Dutch. If you want to be sure you are in a Dutch course, please get in touch with academy@devon.nl in case the information on a specific date is not available on the course page.

What do the costs include?

Unless mentioned otherwise, the course fee includes the cost of training material, exam cost, the use of the location, catering and parking.

Only one or two locations are visible. How is that possible?

When you click on the orange arrow, the menu will unfold further. More locations and dates might appear.

Is VAT included in the prices shown?

The costs that apply to our programs initiated from the Netherlands are exempt from sales tax as per Article 11-1-o of the 1968 Sales Tax Act. In other locations/countries, the prices shown are excluding VAT, which will be added.
