The stakes for software security are very high. Yet, many development teams deal with software security only after the code has been developed and the software is prepared for delivery. As with any aspect of software quality, security and privacy issues should be managed throughout the entire software development lifecycle to ensure successful implementation.
This course presents an approach for dealing with security and privacy throughout the entire software development lifecycle. You will learn about vulnerabilities that undermine security and how to identify and remediate them in your projects. In addition, you will learn general strategies for dealing with security defects and misconfiguration, how to design software to deal with the human element in security, and how to incorporate security into all phases of development.
In this course, you will employ the best practices in software development to develop secure software.
• Identify the need for security in your software projects
• Use a Security by Design approach to design a secure architecture for your software
• Implement common protections to protect users and data
• Apply various testing methods to find and correct security defects in your software
• Maintain deployed software to ensure ongoing security
Hands-on exercises are designed to keep the typing of code to a bare minimum. CertNexus provides students with all of the code they need to complete activities. The activities do not require a “deep dive” into code to understand the principles being covered.
Who should attend?
This course is designed for software developers, testers, and architects who design and develop software in various programming languages and platforms, including desktop, web, cloud, and mobile, and who want to improve their ability to deliver software that is of high quality, particularly regarding security and privacy.
This course is also designed for students who are seeking the CertNexus Cyber Secure Coder (CSC) Exam CSC-210 certification.
