Student teams will employ the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) approach for their venture and continuously pivot to serve their targeted market segment better.
Cybersecurity Elective Track II – Secured Coding
Secured coding is the practice of developing software applications that are designed to be resistant to cyberattacks. It involves following secure coding practices and standards to reduce the risk of vulnerabilities and threats in the software development process. In secured coding, developers use secure coding techniques to identify potential vulnerabilities in the code, including input validation, error handling, and access control. They also implement security controls, such as encryption, hashing, and secure communication protocols, to protect data from unauthorized access and interception. Overall, the implementation of secured coding practices is essential in protecting software applications from cyber threats and ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive information.
