Secure Programming: Developing Defensible Web Applications Course

A 10% discount is available for ATC Members, Auburn and Opelika Chamber Members and Auburn University Employees. Enter the organizational coupon code when registering to receive this discount.

This class first demonstrates to developers how attackers create strategies to compromise applications in order to help students “think like an attacker.” The class then moves into demonstrating how the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) provides developers with the tools to successfully develop applications that are difficult or impossible to hack. This class is rich in hands-on opportunities giving developers a chance to see for themselves how attackers think, how the framework protects the application, as well as where it falls short. This course also satisfies section 6.5 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

This class is focused specifically on software development but is accessible enough for anyone who’s comfortable working with code and has an interest in understanding the developer’s perspective: Software Developers and Architects; Testers/QA specialists; Systems and Security Administrators; and Penetration Testers.

This course qualifies for 1.95 CEU / 19.5 CPE credits.
