Training overview

Infosec’s CSSLP Boot camp teaches you how to incorporate security practices throughout the software development lifecycle. You’ll learn key policies, procedures and best practices related to secure software development and how to incorporate them into each phase of the development lifecycle.

You’ll leave fully prepared to earn your CSSLP certification and prove to employers that you have the knowledge and skills necessary to implement secure software development and help mitigate cyber threats.

Before your boot camp

Prerequisites

In order to obtain the CSSLP certification, you must have:

  • At least four years of professional Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) experience
  • A work history reflecting direct experience in at least one of the eight domains listed in the (ISC)² CSSLP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK)

However, you can become an Associate of (ISC)² by passing the exam without the required work experience.
