What Will Be Taught For This Certified Application Security Engineer Course?

The Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE) focuses on secure application software development processes.

It is a, hands-on, comprehensive application security course that will help you create a secure application software.

This course encompasses security activities involved in all phases of the Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC): planning, creating, testing, and deploying an application.

Unlike other application security trainings, CASE goes beyond just the guidelines on secure coding practices to include secure requirement gathering, robust application design, and handling security issues in post development phases of application development.

The CASE certification exam and training program prepare application security engineers, analysts, testers, and anyone with exposure to any phase of SDLC to build secure applications that are robust enough to meet today’s challenging operational environment by focusing not just on secure coding, but much more.

This makes CASE one of the most comprehensive certifications on the market today. It’s desired by software application engineers, analysts, testers globally, and respected by hiring authorities
