Burp Suite for testers and developers

The purpose of the workshop is to provide testers and developers an overview how the Burp suite can be used for web testing work. Even though Burp is primarily designed for penetration testers, its sophisticated capabilities can come handy for everyone whose job is to perform general bug hunting in web applications.

By the end of the training, participants will have a general understanding of how web applications work under the hood, how to use Burp for troubleshooting errors and how to utilize Burp's tool set for re-creation of error conditions by manual HTTP traffic manipulation.

  • When the event is approaching we will contact the enrolled/registered visitors with a so called "student's doc" which will contain all the details of the course. May that document not be shared with a student/visitor 5 days prior the event, please alarm us at the above channels!
Fast booking/reservation

May the above corporate flow not fit your situation, you can choose to pay €50 now as a deposit to reserve your seat at the price of today, receive your invoice, and pay the rest cca. 3 weeks before the event.

  • Hit the 'Reserve fast (€50 deposit)' button/tab on the event card. Pay that deposit instantly at PayPal / with any debit/credit card.
  • We will contact you in email within a day to confirm your reservation.
What payment options are available?

Wiretransfer (SEPA/SWIFT/TransferWise), credit/debit cards, Paypal-to-Paypal.

What VAT rate applies/payable/included/excluded?
  • In case of EU VAT subjects (except the Hungarian businesses) and of non-EU clients the rate is 0%.
    Thus ticket price of €1000 is net 1K + 0 VAT payable.
  • For all the other clients -- EU individuals and Hungarian companies -- the VAT is 27%, and is NOT included in the announced ticket prices.
    Thus the announced ticket price of €1000 means €1'270 payable for them (including VAT).
  • Note: special fiscal/taxation regulation cases may apply.
Are the tickets refundable?

We refund the price you paid with deduction of a €50 cancellation fee per seat when cancellation is requested by a client latest on the 32nd day prior the event. In case of the later requests we are ready to suspend and reassign your order to an other training (€50 re-booking fee per seat applies).

Why is that weird note at the event card: "In the unlikely case of low demand this training can be gracefully cancelled..."?

One of the standard conditions of our public trainings is that the booked tickets are to cover the costs. If on the 32nd day prior to the event we see that the announced training may end up in losses then we may cancel it with full rollback. All parties retire back to square one. You as the client get full refund of the money transfered for the tickets of the cancelled event.
