How to Develop Secure Apps

How to Develop Secure Apps

Starting tomorrow, thanks to the synergy with the Chamber of Commerce of Basilicata, a new course kicks off for SMEs in Basilicata. The objective, as part of Programme Ambizione Italia for Cybersecurity, is to train IT sector professionals on cybersecurity with a focus on web application security throughout their development cycle. 

Following a general introduction, to homogenise the starting knowledge of participants, the course will focus on specific guidelines for the protection of web apps as defined by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP Foundation). The course will address the OWASP Top Ten – the ten greatest threats that pose a menace to global web services and security techniques and tools. Moreover, indications will be given for the management of breaches.  The course will alternate theoretical content with practical sessions and the issues addressed will be treated concretely to facilitate the immediate application in working contexts.
