Writing web applications can be complex. Reasons range from dealing with legacy technologies, undocumented third-party components, short deadlines, and code maintainability. Yet, beyond all that, what if we told you that attackers were trying to break into your code right now? How likely would they be to succeed?

This course will introduce you to the Secure Software Development Lifecycle concept and change the way you look at your code. We'll teach you the stages of SDLC and how it applies to your daily work. The course covers common weaknesses and consequences that allow hackers to attack your system and – more importantly – best practices you can use to protect yourself. We cover typical Web vulnerabilities focusing on how they affect web apps on the entire stack – from the base environment to modern AJAX and HTML5- based frontends. In addition, we discuss the security aspects of different platforms and typical programming mistakes you need to be aware of. We also cover different ways of testing and modeling your application from a security perspective. The entire course is presented through live practical exercises to keep it engaging and fun.

Writing secure code will give you a distinct edge over your competitors. It is your choice to be ahead of the pack – take a step and be a game-changer in the fight against cybercrime.

  • Understand basic concepts of security, IT security and secure coding
