Cyber Secure Coder - REETUS

December 10, 2019by REETUS TRAINING

Cyber Secure Coder

Duration 3 days

Overview

The stakes for software security are very high, and yet many development teams deal with software security only after the code has been developed and the software is being prepared for delivery.
As with any aspect of software quality, to ensure successful implementation, security and privacy issues should be managed throughout the entire software development lifecycle.
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 own projects.
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.

Course Objectives

In this course, you will employ best practices in software development to develop secure software.

You will:

  • Identify the need for security in your software projects.
  • Eliminate vulnerabilities within software.
  • 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.

Target Audience

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 Logical Operations Cyber Secure Coder (CSC) Exam CSC-110 certification.
This course is ideal for software developers, testers, and architects who develop in multiple programming languages for any type of platform who desire or are required to develop highly protected applications for business and organizational use who fulfil job roles such as:
  • Lead Developer
  • Programmer
  • Application Tester/QA Tester
  • Software Designer/Architect

Prerequisites

This course presents secure programming concepts that apply to many different types of software development projects. While this course uses Python, HTML, and JavaScript to demonstrate various programming concepts, you do not need to have experience in these languages to benefit from this course. However, you should have some programming experience, whether it be developing desktop, mobile, web, or cloud applications
