Secure Application Coding
Secure Application Coding Training Program - Methodology, Practices and Strategies

Application source code - according to most studies - is  a major source of vulnerabilities. A CSI survey on vulnerability distribution suggests that 64% of the time, vulnerabilities  crops up due to programming errors and 36% of the time, due to configuration issues. According to IBM labs, there is a possibility of at least one security issue contained in every 1,500 lines of code.

Given the increasing reliance on information, never before has it been more important to follow secure coding and design principles to mitigate security risks that may arise out of errors and oversights during the designing and coding of applications.

Course Objectives : K-Secure's Secure Application Coding (SAC) Training Program   focuses on the key issue of designing and writing secure code - a fundamental property of Application Security (AppSec). With real life cases, hands one exercises, code scanning tools and defense plans,  participants would be methodically taken down to the source code level and exposed to the flaws in design and coding practices. The class focuses on the proper ways of writing secure code and analyzing the code base. This class addresses popular languages and platforms like VB/C# (.NET), Java(J2EE), PHP, ASP etc.

Our Training Calendar lists scheduled  Secure Coding  Training Programs in Bombay & other parts of India.

Location : Our Secure Coding Training course is conducted at our state-of-the-art Training Lab in Mumbai - India. We can also - on request - conduct this course on-site at customer locations throughout the country such as Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune etc.

Who should attend : Developers, QA team, Code reviewers, Security professionals and Managers.
