Help: Secure software development courses

Postby rickman » 2016-10-21 05:30

Hi, I need to start a new career in information security. I am from Montreal and now I am in search of good courses in Information security for a software engineer(My friends advised me; not to go with EC council courses as they may charge an annual fee for membership)
My senior team member told me to stick with Curses on secure software development. Such courses will be easy for me as I am well sounded in Python, bash scripting,Java. Hope someone from here can help me.
Thank you very much for reading my concern

NCI’s training curriculum begins with an overview of the Microsoft Software Development Lifecycle (SDL) and the six core design principles.

This company is selling services in the area of cyber-security -> do You think that they are going to teach You how to write secure software? That would make their services obsolete...
The real purpose of such "trainings" is to convince You to buy their services -> just a waste of time.
... unless You only need some "certificate" of questionable value ...

How to write secure software:
step1:
Any application can be only as secure as the underlying operating system/services are - replace Your Windows servers with a GNU/Linux based servers/systems. This way You'll reduce the attack surface by roughly 90%, without writing even a single line of code. This will also significantly reduce Your maintenance and licensing costs - win-win.

step2:
Study the CVE cases and patches - this the *real* knowledge about security problems in software, in a clearest form.

Regards.
