Bank API as Microservices with CQRS in TypeScript | Level Up Coding

Very seldom, do we get to see several technologies used so well together. With the exception of how to illustrate how the secrets should be managed, this article really shows what secure by design is all about.

Are you a Secure Programmer?

December 27, 2019 Leave a comment

Happy New Year to those of you who read this blog, and to those folks who remember my predictions about going over 20,000 unique CVEs in 2019, I trust you may agree that 2019 was a banner year for vulnerabilities. Lucent/Alcatel are among the vendors who have CVEs that have taken us over 20,000 this year (CVE-2019-20047, 20048).

It’s time to ask yourself, are the hackers getting better at ‘hacking’ or are coders just getting worse? If we are going to examine how the last half of a decade has had more than 10,000 unique vulnerabilities each year and that number keeps increasing, we will all need to come to the conclusion that programmers just don’t know how to create programs that are secure by default!

Here is a chance for some of the best and brightest programmers to change course and learn how to avoid these vulnerabilities once and for all.

A California University (UCDavis) has created an online course that can help teach the Principles of Secure Coding. In a series of four courses, developers can learn about the fundamentals, identify vulnerabilities and walk on the wildside as they learn how to hack just like the a blackhat!

Take one, two or the set of four courses and really understand how pentesters can exploit how code works so you can learn how to avoid many of the common pitfalls. https://www.coursera.org/specializations/secure-coding-practices
