EC-Council Certified Secure Programmer - ECSP 

Software defects, bugs, and flaws in the logic of a program are consistently the cause for software vulnerabilities. Analysis by software security professionals has proven that most vulnerabilities are due to errors in programming. Hence, it has become crucial for organizations to educate their software developers about secure coding practices.

Attackers scan for security vulnerabilities in applications and servers and attempt to use these vulnerabilities to steal secrets, corrupt programs and data, and gain control of computer systems and networks. Sound programming techniques and best practices should be used to develop high quality code to prevent web application attacks. Secure programming is a defensive measure against attacks targeted towards application systems.
