About this course

This five-day intensive course enables the participants to understand specific principles and concepts proposed by ISO/IEC 27034 for AS and understand how they can be implemented, step by step, to help organizations to develop, acquire, implement, use, and maintain trustworthy applications, according to their specific business context, at an acceptable cost. More specifically, the ISO/IEC 27034 framework proposes components and processes to provide verifiable evidences that an application have reached and maintained a targeted level of trust as specified by the organization.

The responsibility of a Certified ISO/IEC 27034 Application Security Lead Implementer is to assist organizations to put in place required 27034 framework elements and guide the organization to integrate Application Security Controls (ASC) seamlessly throughout the life cycle of their applications. AS applies not only to the software of an application but also to its other components and contributing factors that impact its security, such as its technological context, its regulatory  context, its business context, its specifications, the sensitivity of its data, and the processes and actors supporting its entire life cycle. This framework applies to all sizes and all types of organizations (e.g. not only to commercial enterprises, government agencies and non-profit organizations that are using applications, but also to large, medium and small
vendors that develop software, application and business services) exposed to security risks on information associated  with their applications.

Who should attend?

  • Managers, such as information security managers, project managers, administrators, software development  managers, application owners and line managers, who wish to:
    • balance the cost of implementing and maintaining AS against the risks and value it represents for the organization;
    • prepare and to support an organization in the implementation of an AS project
  • Provisioning and operation teams such as architects, analysts, programmers, testers, system administrators, DBA,  network administrators, and technical personnel, who wish to:
    • minimize the impact of introducing ASC into organizations’ existing processes, such as design, development,
    test, deployment, operation, archival and destruction
    • understand which controls should be applied at each stage of an application’s life cycle and witch one should be
    implemented inside the application itself
  • Acquirers and Suppliers who wish to:
    • prepare/comply to requests for proposals that include requirements for ASC and Level of Trust
  • Auditors who wish to:
    • fully understand the AS processes involves in the ISO/IEC 27034

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the implementation of AS in accordance with ISO/IEC 27034
  • To gain a comprehensive understanding of the concepts, approaches, standards, methods and technique
  • To understand the relationship between the components of an AS including risk management, controls and compliance with the requirements of different stakeholders of the organization
  • To acquire necessary expertise to support an organization in implementing, managing and maintaining an AS as specified in ISO/IEC 27034
  • To acquire necessary expertise to manage a team implementing ISO/IEC 27034
