CertNexus Cyber Secure Coder

On this accelerated 3-day Cyber Secure Coder (CSC) course, you'll learn how to identify and remedy software security breaches and vulnerabilities - 40% faster than traditional training. 

Become a Cyber Secure Coder and build secure architecture for your software, helping your business grow and keep internal data protected.

You'll be immersed in the curriculum through Firebrand's unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, which allows you learn and retain information faster.

Your expert instructor will introduce tools and tactics used to manage cyber security risks, teaching you to understand and integrate technologies from a range of different vendors and how to combat the security risks involved. You'll gain a new, specialised set of skills working with a variety of software, Python, HTML and more.

On this all-inclusive accelerated course, you'll learn how to:

  • Identify the need for new security in software
  • Eliminate vulnerabilities by using a Security by Design approach
  • Implement protections for user data
  • Apply various tests to uncover and correct security defects and maintain current software

With these skills, you'll be a valuable asset - enabling your business to keep up with demands for connectivity and application development by ensuring software and applications are safe from increasingly severe cyber threats.

During this course, you'll not only build on your current skill set, but also prepare for and sit the CertNexus Cyber Secure Coder exam (CSC-210), covered by your Certification Guarantee.

This course is designed for software developers, testers and architects. However, feel free to enrol if you have interest in furthering your learning and developing more skills in these areas.
