Certified Secure Web Application Engineer Training (CSWAE)

Certified Secure Web Application Engineer Training (CSWAE); Organizations and governments fall victim to internet-based attacks every day. In many cases, web attacks could be thwarted but hackers, organized criminal gangs, and foreign agents are able to exploit weaknesses in web applications.

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 aren’t subject to common vulnerabilities, and how to test and validate that their applications are secure, reliable and resistant to attack.

Web applications are increasingly more sophisticated and as such, they are critical to almost all major online businesses. As more applications are web enabled, the number of web application security issues will increase, traditional local system vulnerabilities, such as directory traversals, overflows and race conditions, are opened up to new vectors of attack.

The responsibility for the security of sensitive systems will rest increasingly with the web developer, rather than the vendor or system administrator. As with most security issues involving client/server communications, Web application vulnerabilities generally stem from improper handling of client requests and/or a lack of input validation checking on the part of the developer.
