C.A.S.E (Certified Application Security Engineer)
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.
Security Risk Not Limited to only Web Applications
Certifified Application Security Engineer (CASE)
Many globally recognizable retail outlets have dealt with enormous data breaches recently because they ignored
application security. Billion-dollar companies with global footprints have faced massive data leakage, including their customers’ and employees’ personal and financial information, because their applications were faulty. Retail giants like Forever 21, GameStop, Panera Bread, Sonic, KMart, and Hudson Bay (Saks Fifth Avenue) are a few
on the list of retailers with thousands of outlets that used POS machines or payment gateways that allegedly resulted
in information theft. There are many more modern, digital platforms like Uber, Yahoo, Dropbox, Adobe, LinkedIn, and
Tumblr who also faced similar breaches, owing to the same reason – lack of application security.
Secure Software Development Process
The Gap Between Patching Software and Security Is Vast! The .Net framework has increased in popularity because of its open source nature, interoperability, language independence, library of codes and ease of deployment. It’s become the preferred choice for application developers. However, there are not many classes that teach developers how to ensure their code is secure as well as correct. Moreover, any gap in the application development and deployment process can be damaging. .Net developers often learn security on the job. This is primarily because the basic education of programming does not usually cover or emphasize security concerns .
Java Based Applications: The Most Popular and Yet the Most Vulnerable? According to the 2017 State of Software Security Report, nearly 90% of Java applications contain one or more vulnerable
component, making them ideal breach points for hostile attackers. Although Java has come a long way from its development in 1995, cyber crime has also spread, reaching epidemic levels,
increasing the need for secure Java developers, regardless of whether they’re creating a new program or upgrading an old one.
