Hands On Learning

SANS Secure Software Development programme addresses security issues across many of today's dominant languages and platforms. We offer training for Java/JEE, .NET, C and C++, and for web app developers.

Our app developer course addresses server configuration, authentication, SQL injections and many other technologies.

Whichever technology or language students choose, the training they receive will be practical and skills based. Students are introduced to theories covering best practices, common security vulnerabilities, and major risks. Students learn about remediating these risks.

With the theory explored students then put what they've learned into practice. This happens in one of many live coding lab exercises. Exercises are numerous, taxing and immersive. Some courses culminate in code review challenges.

By the end of our Secure Development Private Training students have rehearsed thoroughly the skills needed to build a highly defensible application or product.

Secure Software Development Private Training Benefits

Many organisations for whom operational security is paramount choose SANS Private Training.

With training being delivered within your organisation you can ensure complete confidentiality.


With a SANS Instructor embedded in an organisation, managers and employer achieve many efficiencies.

SANS Instructors can, for example, tailor their training to orbit technologies, scenarios and situations a business faces. This, given a SANS Instructor's experience, can add considerable consultative value.

Organisation that opt for Private Training make financial efficiencies. They avoid paying the expenses associated with sending team members to external training: travel, accommodation and subsistence. Across a large team these costs can become considerable.

By removing travel from the equation, private training reduces the amount of time team members are away from their projects too.
