Organizations today rely on critical software systems to conduct business. It's these systems, however, that are often at the root of many headlines about data breaches and corporate hacks. Despite maturing software development processes and increasing deployment of software security tools, organizations often do not focus on the most effective practices for securing critical applications. Common attacks are often caused by simple mistakes that occur while software is being developed and deployed. By educating everyone involved in the software development process, including developers, architects, managers, testers, business owners and partners, you reduce the chances that your organization will become a victim of today's data security threats and ensure they can properly build defensible applications from the start.

Join Frank Kim, SANS Application Security Curriculum Lead, and learn how organizations can use the SANS Securing the Human ' Developer to train developers how to avoid common mistakes and create more secure applications. See first-hand examples of common application security flaws that can be addressed through developer security awareness training and understand why application security should be part of every organizations ' security program.
