ISO 27034 Lead Implementer Path This five-day intensive course enables the participants to understand specific principles and concepts proposed by ISO/IEC 27034 for AS and understand how they can be implemented, step by step, to help organizations to develop, acquire, implement, use, and maintain trustworthy applications, according to their specific business context, at an acceptable cost. More specifically, the ISO/IEC 27034 framework proposes components and processes to provide verifiable evidences that an application have reached and maintained a targeted level of trust as specified by the organization.

The responsibility of a Certified ISO/IEC 27034 Application Security Lead Implementer is to assist organizations to put in place required 27034 framework elements and guide the organization to integrate Application Security Controls (ASC) seamlessly throughout the life cycle of their applications. AS applies not only to the software of an application but also to its other components and contributing factors that impact its security, such as its technological context, its regulatory context, its business context, its specifications, the sensitivity of its data, and the processes and actors supporting its entire life cycle.

This framework applies to all sizes and all types of organizations (e.g. not only to commercial enterprises, government agencies and non-profit organizations that are using applications, but also to large, medium and small vendors that develop software, application and business services) exposed to security risks on information associated with their applications.

Because it is a course with a very relevant practical impact, participants are invited to implement an Application Security (AS) Processes, Activities & Security Techniques in the classroom, during training, based on a case study. This practice supports the necessary theoretical part of the training and establishes a clear link between theory, standards/regulations and how to do it. In this way, participants are able to transfer the knowledge of training to the job and acquire a greater critical sense about the requirements and their applicability in the organization.

Training Methodology
This training is based on both theory and practice:
  • Sessions of lectures illustrated with examples based on real cases;
  • Practical exercises based on a full case study including role playing and oral presentations;
  • Review exercises to assist the exam preparation;
  • Practice test similar to the certification exam.
The benefit from the practical exercises, the number of training participants is limited.

  • Managers, such as information security managers, project managers, administrators, software development managers, application owners and line managers, who wish to balance the cost of implementing and maintaining AS against the risks and value it represents for the organization; prepare and to support an organization in the implementation of an AS project.
  • Provisioning and operation teams such as architects, analysts, programmers, testers, system administrators, DBA, network administrators, and technical personnel, who wish to minimize the impact of introducing ASC into organizations’ existing processes, such as design, development, test, deployment, operation, archival and destruction; understand which controls should be applied at each stage of an application's life cycle and witch one should be implemented inside the application itself.
  • Acquirers and Suppliers who wish to prepare/comply to requests for proposals that include requirements for ASC and Level of Trust.
  • Auditors who wish to fully understand the AS processes involves in the ISO/IEC 27034

Participants should understand English as the course documentation is in this language.
