The Certified Secure Web Application Engineer, 4- day course is designed to equip students with the knowledge and tools needed to identify and defend against security vulnerabilities in software applications. Students will put theory to practice by completing real world labs that include testing applications for software vulnerabilities, identifying weaknesses in design through architecture risks analysis and threat modeling, conducting secure code reviews and more.
On the final day of training, students will complete a real world hacking exercise on a live web application.
These secure coding skills are in desperate need today because the internet is one of the most dangerous places to do business; there are countless cases of valuable information being stolen from businesses because there was vulnerability in their web applications. When programmers don't understand the principles of secure coding, doors are open to those who do. .
