WhiteHat Certified Secure Developer

Secure Coding De-Mystified

You’re developing applications at the speed of light, but now there’s a new requirement that could slow you down: security. Yet it’s essential; vulnerable applications are often the wormhole connecting malicious hackers to an organization’s assets.

WhiteHat wants to make it easy for developers to explore and conquer the world of application security. We’re experts in AppSec, so we’ve launched a Certified Secure Developer Program (WCSD) to enable all developers to write secure code while maintaining the agility and speed their organizations demand. Led by some of the planet’s leading AppSec experts, this program includes a 5-part webinar training series AND complimentary access to a supplemental computer-based training course (worth $500).

Complete the program requirements, pass the certification test and become an official WhiteHat Certified Secure Developer (WCSD).
