Nova certificação direcionada para software seguro. Parece interessante!
Fabricio Braz
Dear Valued Member,
I am pleased to inform you that (ISC)2 launched a brand new certification
program designed to validate secure software development
practices and expertise and address the increasing number of application
vulnerabilities.  The need for education and certification
in this area has become an overwhelming global concern in the industry and
as a certifying body and proponent of continuing
professional education we were presented the opportunity to provide a
solution to address the issue. 
The Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP) aims to stem
the proliferation of security vulnerabilities resulting
from insufficient development processes by establishing best practices and
validating an individual's competency in addressing
security issues throughout the software lifecycle (SLC). It takes a holistic
approach to software security. Code-language neutral,
it will be applicable to anyone involved in the SLC, including analysts,
developers, software engineers, software architects,
project managers, software quality assurance testers and programmers. CSSLP
is the only certification in the industry that ensures
that security is considered throughout the entire software lifecycle. 
Subject areas covered by the CSSLP include the software lifecycle,
vulnerabilities, risk, information security fundamentals and
compliance. Candidates must demonstrate four years of professional
experience in the SLC process or three years experience and a
bachelor's degree (or regional equivalent) in an IT discipline. 
The seven domains of the CSSLP CBK are:
Secure Software Concepts
Secure Software Requirements
Secure Software Design
Secure Software Implementation/Coding
Software Acceptance
Software Deployment, Operations, Maintenance and Disposal
Currently, (ISC)2 is seeking qualified professionals who meet experience and
other requirements to participate in the assessment.
For more information and to register for the Open CSSLP Experience
Assessment, visit www.isc2.org/csslp. You could become one of the
first CSSLP holders and be asked to contribute to the exam development
process and assist in other program development tasks.
Applications for the CSSLP Open Experience Assessment will be accepted from
September 25, 2008 (EST) through March 31, 2009, with
the first education seminars slated for Q2 2009 and first exam
administration June 2009.
A wide range of respected organizations have expressed their support for the
CSSLP, including: Microsoft, Symantec,  DSCI (NASSCOM),
SANS, SRS International, Software Assurance Forum for Excellence in Code
(SAFECode), Cisco, Xerox, SAIC, ISSA, and Frost & Sullivan.
