Course Description

In this 18-video course, learners can explore how to deploy and maintain software and operations. First, you will examine pre-release and post-release activities to address factors such as pre-release testing, completion criteria, risk analysis, incident response, and disaster recovery considerations. Next, examine pre-deployment and post-deployment security testing, security approval, security monitoring, incident response. Examine concepts such as secure activation, environment hardening, and disaster recovery, in which testing is critical to test software and data recoverability, often revealing problems with system availability and data accuracy and integrity. Learn to perform failover testing to ensure that the failover mechanism works as intended, and to consider simulated disasters as a strategy for testing recoverability. You will absorb the basic principles of problem and change management, a process guiding organizations when modifying software or performing upgrades or fixes on software applications, as well as patch and vulnerability management. Next, you will learn more about working with backups, archiving, and retention. The course prepares learners for the (ISC)2 CSSLP: Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional certification exam.
