Check Point/AppSec for Developers (CCPE)

AppSec for Developers (CCPE) Certification Training Course Overview


During this 2 day course, developers will be able to get on the same page with security professionals, understand their language, learn how to fix or mitigate vulnerabilities learnt duringthe class and get acquainted with some real-world breaches. The techniques discussed in this class are mainly focused on .NET, Java and NodeJS technologies owing to their huge adoption in various enterprises in building web applications. However, the approach is kept generic and developers from other language backgrounds can easily grasp and implement the knowledge learned within their own environments.Delegates will participate in a CTF challenge where they will have the chance to identify vulnerabilities in code snippets derived from real-world applications.

Target Audience
This course is ideal for Web/API developers who work day-in-day out building full-stack web applications or web APIs. Anyone who is looking to develop a skill-set into web application security and identify web application flaws can also benefit from this course.
Learning Objective
  • Covers industry standards such as OWASP top 10 with a practical demonstration of vulnerabilities complemented with hands-on lab practice.
  • Provides insights into the latest security vulnerabilities (such as host header injection, XML external entity injection, attacks on JWT tokens, deserialization vulnerabilities).
  • Offers thorough guidance on best security practices (Introduction to various security frameworks and tools and techniques for secure application development).
  • Makes real-world analogies for each vulnerability explained (Understand and appreciate why Facebook would pay $33,000 for XML Entity Injection vulnerability?).
