Course Overview
Hi everyone! My name is Kevin Henry, a security consultant, a computer analyst programmer, and a holder of the CSSLP certification--Certified Security Software Lifecycle Professional. I look forward to sharing knowledge and experiences with you. Welcome to my course on Secure Software Design, the third domain of the CSSLP. This course will help you design secure software programs and systems and assist you in preparing for the examination. Almost certainly, we've all heard the clichés about poor planning leading to poor project performance, and that is very true in the field of software development. Not taking the time to design and architect our software often leads to incomplete and disappointing results. Through this course, you will learn the process of effective enterprise-wide software design. Some of the major topics we will cover include the skills of security and software architecture, the design of controls to mitigate risk to software, and designing robust and resilient software. By the end of this course, you'll be prepared to progress into the next domain of this CSSLP, Secure Software Implementation and Programming. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about the value, benefits, and features of the Secure Software Lifecycle and the role you can play in this exciting and rewarding field through this course at Pluralsight.
