What is Secure Engineering and why do we need training?

All software engineers need to ensure they integrate security into the software development lifecycle, during design and development. Developers who understand security can minimise security weaknesses, bugs, exploits or violations of programming standards. The objective is to stop hackers from being able to exploit an organisation's data or system resources due to insecure coded software.

Some organisations have experienced security software developers to look at software designs from a security perspective to identify and resolve security issues. A secure software engineer is responsible for developing secure software and integrating security into application software developed by other teams or third parties. They also produce source code for security tools such as those providing intrusion detection, traffic analysis, virus, and malware detection.

Threat Modelling engages teams in a structured way to take a deep look at the structure of IT and OT systems and use scenarios and risk patterns to find stress points and vulnerabilities.

At QA we equip organisations, through secure by design programmes to ensure cross functional deployment of security skills into the non-security roles. We offer a gamified agile secure coding experience, certified secure coding skills in multiple languages and other application security courses.
