Poorly written systems or applications can allow an attacker to exploit coding errors and thus interrupt the orderly processes of the system or application. This course discusses methods to increase the security of operating system and application development and thwart attacker attempts to manipulate source code. It also covers application and database development models such as the SDLC and how choosing the right model supports security. This course guides you through the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) recommended by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC2) for its Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification. The CISSP credential certifies student expertise in ten different knowledge domains and covers the most recent key areas of knowledge as outlined in the Candidate Information Bulletin (CIB) effective date: January 1, 2012.
