Secure Developer (Core)


The Secure Developer – Core Learning Path introduces application security’s fundamental and primary drivers. The curriculum provides individuals with an understanding of the importance of secure software development while preparing them to perform at the organizational level. Learners will gain in-depth knowledge of security principles, attacks, tools, and processes to develop secure software. By introducing the OWASP Top 10, learners are prepared to identify the most critical web application security risks, appropriately address those vulnerabilities, and prevent software flaws that enable cyberattacks.

Upon successful completion of this path, you will have the knowledge and skills to:

  • Define the value of having secure applications
  • Integrate secure software development practices into all phases of the software development lifecycle
  • Explain the anatomy of an application attack
  • Apply best practices to protect all components of the software
  • Identify and mitigate the most common application security risks
  • Implement a security strategy based on your organization’s risk
  • Produce well-secured software

NOTE: This Learning Path is considered principal to all Elite Secure Developer Learning Paths. Learn and Skill labs are elective training modules that help transform concepts into tangible skills through hands-on, realistic examples of real-world threat scenarios.




Learning paths may include elective course content that is not required to complete SI-CSC certification exams successfully. These additional courses are suggested based on alignment with the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework.
