Proactive Mobile Defense

3 Days | Face to Face

Hack your way into a mobile app, discovering the full range of capabilities used by attackers – and the mindset behind their actions.

Attackers are increasingly focusing their efforts on compromising mobile applications. 

With mobile usage having surpassed laptop and desktop, now’s the time to understand: how attackers target mobile apps, the mindset behind their actions, and what you can do to ensure yours are resilient to such threats.

What are the features?

This course uses step-by-step tutorials and practical exercises to give participants working knowledge of mobile hacking on iOS and Android. Understanding the basic principles of vulnerability hunting on-platform, all the way through to advanced exploitation techniques, will equip you to develop secure and resilient mobile apps for your organization or clients.

Business orientated

Practical, exercise-driven, and business-focused.


Written and delivered by our consultants – experienced cyber security professionals, responsible for network penetration tests, daily.


Focused on the offensive techniques and capabilities of modern attackers, and how to defend against them.


Free reign to attack a realistic, simulated network, teaching you core principles that can’t be achieved with a defensive mindset alone.


Teaches how to implement robust cyber security measures to suit your organization, way beyond the basics.


Covers: secure coding principles, design and source code reviews, and vulnerability assessment tools.


Developed by the same people behind publications such as The Mobile Application Hacker’s Handbook and tools like Drozer and Needle.
