Philippe Demaecker, Security Officer, MEDIAGENIX

SecAppDev is a one-week training course that provides a very good introduction on several key area of the Application Security. The course allows students to well understand how security should be included in a Software Development Life Cycle. Trainers are very highly skilled and take time to explain the presented concepts. They are also keen to answer technical questions in detail, even when it spans into the coffee break.

The mindset of this course is "Technical, humbleness and 100% knowledge sharing between all participants, including students".

SecAppDev for me is like a SANS Course but dedicated to the AppSec domain. From a student point of view, it offers the same quality and benefits.but dedicated to the AppSec domain. From a student point of view, it offers the same quality and benefits.
