The internet is one of the most dangerous places to do business today. Every day, organizations and government fall victim to internet based attacks. In many cases, attacks could be easily thwarted but hackers, organized criminal gangs, and foreign agents are able to exploit weaknesses in web applications and architecture. The Secure Web programmer knows how to identify, mitigate and defend against all attacks, through designing and building systems that are resistant to failure. The secure web application developer knows how to develop web applications that are not subject to common vulnerabilities, and how to test and validate that their applications are secure, reliable and resistant to attack. The Secure Web Application Engineer course provides the developer with a thorough and broad understanding of secure application concepts, principles and standards. The developer will be able to design, develop and test web applications that will provide reliable web services that meet functional business requirements and satisfy compliance and assurance needs.


Upon completion, attendees should have the skills to perform the following:

  • Identify application security vulnerabilities in any software application
  • Review software architecture diagrams and identify attack points
  • Perform web application penetration testingDesign controls to defend against application vulnerabilities
  • Identify vulnerabilities as they relate to the OWASP Top 10
  • Perform advanced attacks against web applications
  • Perform security code reviews
  • Develop security test scripts
  • Build a web hacking toolbox
  • Integrate security best practices into the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC)
  • Communicate to both technical and non-technical individuals concerning application vulnerabilities


  • A minimum of 12 months experience in networking technologies
  • Sound knowledge of TCP/IP
  • Knowledge of Microsoft packages
  • Network+, Microsoft, Security+
  • Basic Knowledge of Linux is essential
