Guide for the Secure Software Development Lifecycle
(ISC)2 released of the “Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CSSLP“, a textbook that serves as the only official guide to the Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP) certification.
The CSSLP aims to stem the proliferation of security vulnerabilities resulting from insufficient development processes by establishing best practices and validating an individual’s competency in addressing security issues throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
(ISC)2’s newest credential, the CSSLP is the only certification in the market aimed at ensuring security is built in throughout the SDLC. The goal of the official textbook is to fully educate readers by detailing the security requirements that should be incorporated throughout the SDLC.
“It’s important to differentiate the fact that this and other “official’ (ISC)2 textbooks include study materials vetted by the organization and its membership, resulting in highly current, strong tools for those seeking to take (ISC)2 certification exams that can also serve as valuable stand-alone resources,” said W. Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, executive director of (ISC)2.
“We have taken our time to develop this study tool properly. While others have published CSSLP education materials in an attempt to meet the high demand for providing exam candidates with study materials, we believe that this textbook is the most comprehensive one available for software security professionals planning to take the CSSLP exam.”
The book was authored by Mano Paul, CISSP, CSSLP, MCAD, Network+, ECSA, software assurance advisor for (ISC)2 and CEO and president of Express Certification, a professional training and certification company. The materials were vetted by CSSLPs from around the world prior to being endorsed by (ISC)2.
