The stakes for software security are very high, and yet many development teams deal with software
security only after the code has been developed and the software is being prepared for delivery. As with
any aspect of software quality, to ensure successful implementation, security and privacy issues should
be managed throughout the entire software development lifecycle.
This course presents an approach for dealing with security and privacy throughout the entire software
development lifecycle. You will learn about vulnerabilities that undermine security, and how to identify
and remediate them in your own projects. You will learn general strategies for dealing with security
defects and misconfiguration, how to design software to deal with the human element in security, and
how to incorporate security into all phases of development.
