With its new certification, the EC-Council Certified Secure Programmer – .NET, (ECSP), EC-Council is making moves to usher in a new era of security.

INDIA- EC Council, the world’s leading provider of certifications and training in the information security domain, has launched its latest offering EC-Council Certified Secure Programmer- ECSP.

In today’s news, there is a continuous stream of reports about large, prestigious organizations falling victim to cyber-attacks. “Zero-day” threat vulnerabilities can mean big business on the black market as hackers buy and sell the right to exploit programming errors in some of today’s biggest software programs. EC-Council is responding to this growing threat by getting to the root of the problem – the lack of programmers skilled in secure coding.

The ECSP course focuses on .NET application security and emphasizes building software from the ground up with security as a core focus. It is not a typical training course which focuses on lecture, but rather, 60% of the student’s time is spent learning via dynamic lab exercises.

“We know the demand for software engineers has been climbing over the last decade and many people have embarked on careers in this field. We don’t see the growth in the demand for programmers to decline one bit – but what we do see happening is a huge emphasis on secure coding and the need for those skilled in secure coding.” Says EC-Council President, Jay Bavisi,

Software glitches, bugs, and vulnerabilities cost the world’s economies billions each year. In fact, the Nasdaq is still dealing with the fallout from its Facebook (FB) IPO, blamed on a software glitch, and estimated to eventually cost $62 million. Even car companies have to worry about securing their onboard software as evidenced by Toyota’s recall of thousands of its hybrid cars due to bad coding.

Mr. Bavisi went on to say that, “EC-Council has developed real world labs to ensure the next generation of security professionals have applied the skills they learn before they even get to a job.”
