If you are or aim to become a developer of any kind, you understand the importance of secure coding practices. In 2020, a ton of tasks that involve using personal or financial information are being performed online, and hackers are quick to find weak spots in various systems. A vulnerability in your code could lead to data leaks, and data leaks translate to all kinds of troubles, including financial losses, broken reputations, and so on.
In this short yet informative course, we will discuss secure coding practices that will allow you to prevent the most common front-end related security issues. You will also learn to automate tasks using the SAST (Static Application Security Testing) tool and get to know CI/CD (Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery) integrations. And that’s not all – completing the course will take less than an hour of your valuable time, so you will be able to jump straight to applying your newly-gained knowledge in practice.
Learning how to write secure code is just as important as knowing how to keep it tidy, readable, and bug-free. Hacking attacks are pretty common these days, and you wouldn’t want the website you’re working on to have weak spots a malicious coder could exploit. By guaranteeing the level of security that allows users to trust a system with their sensitive information, a website can gain their trust and loyalty.
Our course is beginner-friendly: you might need some basic front-end development knowledge, but it’s more of a recommendation than a prerequisite. The secure coding practices we explain will prove beneficial to:
To put it simply, secure coding practises is something any web developer should be familiar with. Knowing how to deal with issues before they arise, you will be capable of saving a lot of time (and possibly money) for any business that wants to have a strong and reliable internet presence.
As you probably already know, web development consists of two main parts – front-end and back-end coding. While back-end deals with everything you’d describe as being ‘under the hood’, front-end is basically a way to turn data into a graphical user interface (UI) that the visitors of your website will see and interact with. It’s the UI that they will enter their details into, so secure coding practices are vital for any practicing front-ender.
There are various ways to receive secure coding training, and some can take a lot longer than others. We know how much you value your time, so we tried to make our course as concise as possible. There’s no time for irrelevant background information: we’ll go straight to the point, and make sure you know how to write secure code. Start learning now, and prevent the most common front-end-related security issues from happening!
