“Information Security is identified today as one of the top priorities for CIOs, however, the only way to know if security defenses are effective is to test them. The Advanced Security Tester certification equips testers with knowledge of how to find security flaws and to determine if defenses are working correctly.” Randall W. Rice, CTAL-SEC Working Group Chair.
Model-based testing is an innovative test approach to improve effectivity and efficiency of the test process.
A model-based tester on a project uses models to drive test analysis and design, and keeps advantage of the models for other testing activities such as test implementation and reporting.
ISTQB® Model-Based Tester certification complements the core foundation level as a specialist module.
