Secure Code Course| Why secure coding is essential

Secure coding is the practice of writing software in a way that prevents potential security vulnerabilities. Mostvulnerabilities come from a number of small common errors such as defects, bugs and logic flaws. Security vulnerabilities in different languages can result in a vast array of consequences for the developer and the users. The most targeted programming language for security exploits would be C.


This is mainly due to the structure of the language when defining storage, with the most famous exploit being the buffer overflow exploit. This is when a process tries to store data beyond a fixed-length buffer causing the overflowed data to overwrite other data. However, C is not the only language with security vulnerabilities. Java and Javascript are also prone to exploitation. For example, a Java exploit could include malicious code injection when the code is being interpreted and executed. A Javascript exploit on the other hand, could include a cross-site scripting vulnerability, where a website is altered to return malicious scripts to visitors of the site.


Educating developers about insecure coding practices and secure alternatives will result in a reduction of vulnerabilities before the software is deployed. In order to effectively teach developers this information, employees can undergo a secure code course, where they will have both secure code training, as well as application security training. By reducing the amount of security vulnerabilities before software is deployed, developers will save themselves a vast amount of financial resources that would need to be spent patching the software and helping customers who have been affected by the security flaws.


It is never too late to learn how to code securely. Want to find out more about how to protect your code from security vulnerabilities? Visit the JBI website today for more information about their secure code course in London, UK.
