Application Security Awareness is the knowledge and attitude that members of a development project team possess with regard to the protection of the information assets of systems and applications.
Being security aware means you understand that there is the potential for some people to deliberately or “accidentally” steal, damage, or misuse the data that is stored within a company's computer systems and applications. Therefore, it would be prudent to support the information assets of the company by trying to prevent that from happening.
Awareness of the security risks and available safeguards is the first line of defense for the security of information systems and networks.
The focus of Application Security Awareness should be to achieve a long-term shift in the attitude of development project teams towards application security. Security policies should be viewed as a key enabler for the organisation, not as a series of unnecessary and annoying rules restricting the efficient working of your business.
Participants of this course will be introduced to application security. They will become aware of the security risks that threaten modern day systems and applications. This course will provide you with a basic understanding of how security testing can be used to prevent potential attacks on your applications.
Besides those basic principles, participants will see more advanced topics like OWASP Top 10 and examples of vulnerable source code.
This course is intended for developers, development managers, project managers, test managers and/or any person who is in contact with the security of a system or application.
The participants should have a general understanding of application development and the way modern day applications work.
