To preserve the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of application data, software applications must be engineered with security in mind. Without defined security requirements, design choices will be made without security guidance and security testing cannot be effective.

As part of this course, learners will understand:

  • How to apply the application security maturity (ASM) model to the development process
  • Key security engineering activities: gathering security objectives, applying security design guidelines, and creating threat models
  • How to identify threats, attacks, vulnerabilities, and countermeasures
  • How to conduct impactful security architecture and design reviews to identify potential security problems and minimize the application’s attack surface
