EC-Council sets New Application Security Training Standards with Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE) Program

Press release from: EC-Council

The world’s leading information security certification body, EC-Council, is set to redefine application security by introducing an all new certification program, Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE), on June 20, 2018. This certification will focus on the security requirements and best practices for software and application developers across all stages of the SDLC (software development life cycle). This is a major step and will come as a relief for software and application development teams that work in this multi-trillion dollar ecosystem where the Big 5 (Facebook, Apple, Google, Amazon, and Microsoft).

“Most developers and application engineers do not have appreciation of security, from the point of view of what you need to do to develop applications that are secure,” says Jonathan Zwang, Former Senior Vice President, Global IT Infrastructure, Ralph Lauren, in his interview with EC-Council.

The CASE program is unlike other traditional programming training programs on the market, as it focuses on both pre-deployment and post-deployment security techniques and practices. This program encompasses security activities involved in all phases of the Secure-Software Development Life Cycle (S-SDLC) — planning, creating, testing, and deploying an information system.

According to the “Application Security Market 2018 Global Analysis, Growth, Trends and Opportunities Research Report”, the global application security market is expected to grow from USD 21 billion in 2016 to USD 125 billion by 2023[1] due to the growth and advancement of cyber-attacks across the world.

Application development teams are often under tremendous pressure to deliver applications since most modern organizations chase time-sensitive, rapid fire project timelines. The need for quick turnarounds can mean that security is overlooked in favor of meeting deadlines. This puts end user data and the reputation of the developers at great risk as applications (both web and offline) and software in general have become an inseparable part of daily life amidst the growing digital user-base across the world.

“We are very excited to offer IT professionals in the application industry the ability to reduce vulnerabilities and increase security through the development of a training and certification program that focuses on secure coding and much more,” says Jay Bavisi, President of the EC-Council Group. “With our latest developments, we are certain that application developers will be able to build secure applications that are robust enough to meet the application security challenges of today and tomorrow.”
