Due to the short supply of individuals with these in-demand skills, Application Security Engineers earn more money than Application Developers ( i.e Software Developers) and are in high demand, but the job requires additional training in security.

CertNexus, with its mission to closing the emerging tech global skills gap is teaming up with Moat Academy to bridge this huge gap.

At Moat Academy Secure Coding Boot camp, we equip individuals with programming experience with the much needed security skills to improve their ability to design and develop highly protected applications with confidence and further enable their transitioning to Application Security Engineers.

The training encompasses all you need to gain an entry into the Application Security Engineering role and be great at it. We cover the following:

▪ Identifying and eliminating vulnerabilities in software projects using Security by Design approach.
▪ Leveraging the OWASP Top Ten best practices to protect users and data.
▪ Going beyond OWASP Top Ten and applying Risk-based approach to elicit security requirements.
▪ Applying Static/ Dynamic Security Testing or Penetration testing
▪ Maintaining Security in Post-development phase. It also includes forensic investigation to find evidences after a breach;
▪ And, a veritable certification (Cyber Secure Coder by CertNexus) that is tenable anywhere in the world as you transition into your new career.
Are you a software developer that want more from your career than you presently have? Then, what are you waiting for?
