What is the Certified Cyber Secure Coder training course by CertNexus?

The stakes for software security are very high, and yet many development teams deal with software security only after the code has been developed and the software is being prepared for delivery. As with any aspect of software quality, to ensure successful implementation, security and privacy issues should be managed throughout the entire software development lifecycle. 

This course presents an approach for dealing with security and privacy throughout the entire software development lifecycle. You will learn about vulnerabilities that undermine security, and how to identify and remediate them in your own projects.

You will also learn general strategies for dealing with security defects and misconfiguration, how to design software to deal with the human element in security, and how to incorporate security into all phases of development. 

Course Length: 

This course takes 3 days.

Course Objectives: 

In this course, you will employ best practices in software development to develop secure software. 

You will: 

  • Identify the need for security in your software projects. 

  • Eliminate vulnerabilities within software. 

  • Use a Security by Design approach to design a secure architecture for your software. 

  • Implement common protections to protect users and data. 

  • Apply various testing methods to find and correct security defects in your software. 

  • Maintain deployed software to ensure ongoing security.. 


This course includes hands on activities for each topic area. The goal of these activities is to demonstrate concepts utilizing two universal languages Python and Java Script. Developers who use alternate languages will be able apply the principles from the activities to any coding languages. 

Hands on exercises are designed to keep the typing of code to a bare minimum. CertNexus provides students with all of the code they need to complete activities. The activities do not require a “deep dive” into code to understand the principles being covered. 

Target Student: 

This course is designed for software developers, testers, and architects who design and develop software in various programming languages and platforms, including desktop, web, cloud, and mobile, and who want to improve their ability to deliver software that is of high quality, particularly regarding security and privacy. 

This course is also designed for students who are seeking the CertNexus Cyber Secure Coder (CSC) Exam CSC-210 certification. 


This course presents secure programming concepts that apply to many different types of software development projects. Although this course uses Python®, HTML, and JavaScript® to demonstrate various programming concepts, you do not need to have experience in these languages to benefit from this course.

However, you should have some programming experience, whether it be developing desktop, mobile, web, or cloud applications.
