This is the sixth domain of the CSSLP and addresses the topics the exam candidate needs to know to secure software throughout its entire lifecycle - from project initiation to product replacement or retirement. How to build it - and keep it secure.
In this course, CSSLP®: Secure Lifecycle Management, you will learn how to ensure that software is designed and developed to operate securely, and will remain secure even as changes are made in the software itself or in its operational environment. First, you will learn about software support in business and management requirements to protect data and business assets and comply with laws and regulations. Next you will learn about the need for version control and the value of documentation. Finally you will touch on the decommissioning of software that presents security challenges that are addressed in this course. By the end of this course, you'll be prepared to progress into the next domain of the CSSLP®.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Kevin Henry, a security consultant and computer analyst programmer, and a holder of the CSSLP, Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional certification. I look forward to sharing knowledge and experience with you in this, my course on Secure Lifecycle Management, the sixth domain of the CSSLP certification. This course will help you see the role of the CSSLP in ensuring the security of software throughout the lifespan of the software, from project initiation through to the very end of life, and assist you in preparing for the exam. The content in this domain represents about 10% of the CSSLP examination. Great ideas often lose their direction when the reality of implementation comes about, so also with software. Well-designed software may lose its resilience and reliability when it's put into production. It's important to maintain the adequate protection of and business oriented functionality of software throughout its life span. Some of the major topics we'll then cover include the need for version control, the value of documentation, and secure end of life policies and procedures. By the end of this course you'll be prepared to progress to the next domain of the CSSLP, the area of software deployment, operations, and maintenance. I hope you join me on this journey to learn about the value, benefits, and features of Secure Lifecycle Management and the role you can play in this exciting and rewarding field through this course at Pluralsight.
