Why this course?

Web applications are an integral part of e-commerce, banking, and other major sectors. Applications may suffer from vulnerabilities if issues like speed, user interactions, etc., are given priority over security during development. To ensure security features are implemented, organizations need to conduct web application security audits. A secure application must be continuously updated on the latest vulnerabilities and threats. This interactive training course helps you get familiar with OWASP top 10 vulnerabilities and secure development lifecycles that will in return help you build a secure application.

Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) is a set of practices that helps developers create secure applications. Applications can be built using development models like Microsoft SDL and OWASP guidelines, which reduce their exposure to threats and vulnerabilities.

Secure application development integrates security into every development stage of an application. It ensures that the developed application is free from defects and errors in coding that could cause vulnerability. Implementing secure application development practices may reveal the true level of security within the organization.
