KORNERSTONE is the exclusive Official Training Provider of (ISC)2® in Hong Kong

Slide background

The Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP®) is the only certification in the industry designed to ensure that security is considered throughout the entire software development lifecycle.

Confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication, authorization and auditing – the core tenets of security – must become requirements in the software lifecycle. Without this level of commitment, information is placed at risk. Incorporating security early and maintaining it throughout all the phases of the software lifecycle has proven to be 30-100 times less expensive and incalculably more effective than the release and patch methodology used frequently today.
