One-Day “Security Testing for Developers” Training in Sheffield

Software security vulnerabilities are a serious threat to software vendors and their customers: they can result in both monetary loss and loss of reputation. Thus, implementing a rigid secure software development life-cycle (SDLC) is a competitive advantage for a software vendor. Security testing is an important part of any SDLC. Moreover, it is commonly accepted that security testing should be applied as early as possible in software development.

Interested in applying Security Testing during development? We will offer a one-day continuous professional development (CDP) training on the 13th of September at The University of Sheffield.

In this course, you will learn different security testing approaches (e.g., SAST, DAST), their specific strengths and weaknesses, how to evaluate tools and how to select the best “blend” of tools for their own software development. Moreover, the participants will learn how these tools can be integrated into various software development methods (ranging from traditional waterfall-like processes to agile processes supporting continues delivery).

This course on security testing is only one of our “compact” offerings for people working in industry. Similarly, we are also offering courses on secure programming or an introduction to secure software engineering.

For more information, please visit the website of The University of Sheffield or contact Achim Brucker. We also offer these courses as in-house courses, adapted to your needs and wishes.
