Software defects, bugs, and flaws in the logic of the program are consistently the cause for software vulnerabilities. Analysis by software security professionals has proven that most vulnerabilities are due to errors in programming. Hence, it has become a must for organizations to educate their software developers about secure coding practices.
Attackers try to find security vulnerabilities in the applications or servers and then try to use these vulnerabilities to steal secrets, corrupt programs and data, and gain control of computer systems and networks. Sound programming techniques and best practices can be used to develop high quality code to prevent web application attacks. Secure programming is a defensive measure against attacks targeted towards application systems.
This course will be invaluable to software developers and programmers alike to code and develop highly secure applications and web applications. This is done throughout the software life cycle that involves designing, implementing, and deployment of applications.
