Seminars on secure software design

ISC Squared : 28 September, 2009  (New Product)
The SANS Institute is hosting a series of seminars relating to the Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional qualification from (ISC)2
(ISC)2 has announced that SANS Institute will be holding Official (ISC)2 Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP) CBK Education Seminars at two of its upcoming conferences: SANS London from Nov. 30-Dec. 4 and SANS Cyber Defense Initiative (CDI) in Washington, DC from Dec. 11-15, 2009.

Taught by (ISC)2-certified instructors, the five-day Education Seminars will cover the seven domains of the CSSLP, a certification from (ISC)2 created to stop the proliferation of software security vulnerabilities by establishing best practices and validating an individual's competency in addressing security issues throughout the software development lifecycle.

The course will detail the tools and processes required to build security into each phase of the software lifecycle, from the requirement phase through software design, software testing and disposal.

"With unsecured software posing a greater threat to enterprises every day and causing higher production costs and delays for software developers, educating software lifecycle professionals on optimum security practices is a sensible solution," said Alan Paller, director of research for SANS.

"The CSSLP complements SANS' GIAC Secure Software Programmer (GSSP) certification, which tests developers' secure coding skills," Paller said.

"We are pleased to be working with SANS on this important but frequently-overlooked issue," said Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, CNSS, executive director for (ISC)2. "By raising awareness of the problem and providing one set of solutions with our complementary certifications, we hope to defray the rising costs - both concrete and intangible - of relying on software that has not been properly secured and managed from cradle to grave."

Code-language neutral, the CSSLP is applicable to software analysts, developers, engineers, project managers, software quality assurance testers and programmers. To be eligible for the certification, CSSLP candidates must demonstrate four years of professional experience in the software development lifecycle process, or three years of experience and a bachelor's degree (or regional equivalent) in an IT discipline.

The seven domains of the CSSLP CBK, a compendium of secure software topics, are:

* Secure Software Concepts
* Secure Software Requirements
* Secure Software Design
* Secure Software Implementation/Coding
* Secure Software Testing
* Software Acceptance
* Software Deployment, Operations, Maintenance and Disposal
