Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE)
The Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE) credential is developed in partnership with large application and software development experts globally.
The CASE credential tests the critical security skills and knowledge required throughout a typical software development life cycle (SDLC), focusing on the importance of the implementation of secure methodologies and practices in today’s insecure operating environment.
The CASE certified training program is developed concurrently to prepare software professionals with the necessary capabilities that are expected by employers and academia globally.It is designed to be a hands-on, comprehensive application security course that will help software professionals create secure applications.
The training program encompasses security activities involved in all phases of the 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 and includes secure requirement gathering, robust application design, and handling security issues in post development phases of application development.
This makes CASE one of the most comprehensive certifications on the market today. It is desired by software application engineers, analysts, testers globally, and respected by hiring authorities.
The Purpose of CASE Is
Secure Software Development Process
The Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE) training and certification program provides a comprehensive application security approach which encompasses security activities involved in all the phases of Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC).
For most organizations, software and applications determine their success. However, expedition, duplication, and penny-pinching often take centrestage with security consideration taking a backseat or is not present at all. An insecure or vulnerable application places these businesses at risk.
Addressing security in each phase of the SDLC is the most effective way to create highly secure applications. Robust security-focused design principles followed by rigorous security-focused coding, testing, and deployment practices will lead to applications that can stand up to attacks. This will result in lower ownership costs for both, the end user and the application vendor.
What You Will Learn
Why Become a Certified Application Security Engineer
The .Net framework has increased in popularity because of its open source nature, interoperability, language independence, library of codes and ease of deployment. It has become the preferred choice of application developers. However, there are not many training programs that address secure application development.
While .Net developers often learn security on the job, primarily because the basic education of programming does not usually cover or emphasize security concerns, the CASE program trains these developers to place importance on security.
According to the 2017 State of Software Security Report, nearly 90% of Java applications contain one or more vulnerable component/s, 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 revising an old one.
