Next, you’ll discover some best practices as you develop applications to make sure security is not overlooked.

Finally, you’ll learn how to make sure any cloud services that you might inject into your environment are secured to be used to support your apps and systems.

When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of security analysis needed to integrate and evaluate your organization’s software and system security profile.
