Secure Software Development Online Training Benefits

SANS is the world's largest provider of cyber security training. We have been at the forefront of cyber security training for over 25 years.

Students who take an SANS OnDemand Online Secure Software Development Course have access to Instructors' lectures, delivered either as MP3 audio files or as video files. Access to these resources lasts for a full four months.

SANS Instructors are regarded as best-of-the-best because they are respected and active cyber security practitioners.

When not teaching, our Instructors hold top-ranking security positions in high-profile organisations. They work in corporate, military and government organisations. Many are highly regarded consultants.

Our Software Instructors specialise in defending web applications and have an unparalleled understanding of secure infrastructure, architecture and coding.

SANS OnDemand students are equipped with a set of expertly written textbooks. These add additional facts and technical depth to the course's audio-visual content.

SANS OnDemand training further supports students with a selection of lab exercises. These are designed to allow students to explore and rehearse techniques they've learned. These exercises take place in virtualised environments. The exercises are safe and repeatable so students can practice their new skills.

OnDemand students receive access to a selection of quizzes. These are designed to allow students to rehearse and reinforce lessons they've learned.

SANS' OnDemand training content is updated regularly. This includes the course's textbooks, audio resources, quizzes and lab exercises.

Flexible Training

SANS allows students to access high-quality training with complete flexibility.

Students can access a course, and its material, from tablets, laptops or a desktop.

For employers, OnDemand's inherent flexibility means team members won't need to be away from their posts and projects.

The learning experience across all our training options is completely consistent. All SANS training is built around one key promise: students will be able to put what they've learned into action immediately.

Secure Software Developer Security Certification

Cyber security professionals turn to the Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) to certify their hands-on cyber security skills.

GIAC Certifications are test-based and designed to validate more than just a candidate's abilities to recall facts and information.

SANS and GIAC share a common belief in the value of hands-on training. This alignment means SANS training can offer GIAC candidates significant benefits.

The alignments between SANS' OnDemand Secure Software Development Curriculum of courses and GIAC's certifications are as follows:
