3-day course

Cyber Secure Coder

Security and privacy have never been more important. This course will help developers to better address cyber security throughout the software development lifecycle, not just the eve of delivery.

Course overview

The recent impact of lockdowns and remote working across the world has meant that security considerations have become more important than ever. Participants in this course will learn about vulnerabilities that undermine security, and how to identify and address them in digital projects. 

Participants will get the opportunity to take a Pearson Vue exam to certify your knowledge, skills, and abilities to design and develop applications for various platforms, analyse security concerns outside of specific languages and platforms, use a number of testing and analysis tools, and mitigate against common threats to data and systems

Over three days you will learn about:

  • Identifying the need for security in software projects
  • Handling vulnerabilities
  • Designing for security
  • Developing secure code
  • Implementing common protections
  • Testing software security
  • Maintaining security in deployed software

Cyber Secure Coder is delivered by CodeClan and developed and certified by CertNexus, a global purveyor of vendor neutral, emerging technology certifications and micro-credentials.
