CSC IS THE COMPREHENSIVE CERTIFICATION FOR VALIDATING SECURE CODING PRACTICES - FOR ALL DEVELOPERS, IN ALL PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES, ON ALL PLATFORMS.

The stakes for software security are extremely high with over 100 billion lines of software code being produced each year and 70% of code in apps composed of open-source software and third-party libraries, and yet many development teams are forced to address software security when a vulnerability has been exposed. As with any aspect of software quality, to ensure successful implementation, security and privacy issues should be managed throughout the entire software development lifecycle.

Cyber Secure Coder, leveraging many of the OWASP Top Ten best practices, is designed to validate the knowledge and skills required to design and develop protected applications. This includes better understanding vulnerabilities that undermine security, general strategy for dealing with security defects and misconfiguration, and how to incorporate security into all phases of development.
