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 my knowledge and experience with you during this course. Welcome. This is a course on supply chain and software acquisition. It's the eighth and final domain of the CSSLP certification. This course will help you see the role of a CSSLP with an organization is looking at purchasing software from an outside vendor. As a CSSLP, you'll play a key role in ensuring that security features are available and enabled in acquired software. The content in this domain represents 8% of the CSSLP examination. There are many benefits to acquiring software from a vendor, but the acquisition process must also ensure compliance with security regulations, policy, and audit. So this course will address the following major topics: the need to ensure security controls are available in acquired software, ensuring the secure development process by a software vendor, the process of updating and maintaining third-party software. This is the last of the eight courses that address the content of the CSSLP examination, and I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about the important role you will fill in the areas of software acquisition in this exciting and rewarding field of software security through this course at Pluralsight.
