Sensitize your project team to the topic of security and enable all roles within the team to work on security recommendations. Prepare yourself and your team for the certification of the same name.

Goals of participating in A4Q Cyber Security Essentials

Any handling of IT demands a well thought-out protection of the IT infrastructure, but even the best technical security concept can be undermined if security-critical factors are disregarded in the operation or creation of software. For this reason, successful process models such as the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (MSDL) approach, ISO/IEC 27034-1 or the Open Software Assurance Maturity Model (OpenSAMM) recommend that every employee in a software project should receive solid basic training in IT security and specialized further training in accordance with his or her specific role in the project.

The course takes up these recommendations and provides a thorough introduction to IT security for all roles involved in a software development project, whether they are involved in the creation of an IT system, an application or an embedded system. The contents are illustrated by means of exercises and demonstrations.

Participants will receive a complete preparation for the Certified Security Essentials certificate exam.
