Secure Programmer Expert - Java

Secure programming is the practice of developing applications in a way that prevents the introduction of security vulnerabilities and cyber criminals. By implementing the secure practices, the developer can avoid bugs and remove vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers.

Star Secure Programmer Expert – Java is an exhaustive program that helps the learner to identify and address the various bugs, vulnerabilities and flaws in the logic of a program. These defects leave the software vulnerable to various kinds of threats. The program teaches about defensive measures against attacks targeted towards application systems. The SSPE-J program is intended for programmers who are responsible for designing and building secure programs on the Java platform for the web, desktop and mobile ecosystems.
