Application Security Training Course by ENO

In this Application Security Training course, you will learn the best practices for designing, implementing, and deploying secure applications. Perhaps just as significantly, with this Application Security Training, you will learn about current, real examples that illustrate the potential consequences of not following these best practices. Although this edition of the Application Security Training course is language-agnostic, it may also be presented using Java, .NET or other programming languages or environments.
