Securing software platforms
About the course
Leveraging on the Industry 4.0 thrust, industries are now expanding their services and collaborating with partners to offer customers one-stop solutions. An example is GrabTaxi Holdings Pte. Ltd., a technology-based company which not only offers ride-hailing and ride-sharing services but also integrates credit card payments via GrabPay and GrabFood, a food delivery service. Such services can be seamlessly developed by creating software platforms that expose services to the partners. Platforms are also necessary to ensure that robust applications and services are built quickly by reusing components and common services. The exposure of previously internal services to third parties greatly increases the security attack surface of such software platforms. The new security attack surface should be rigorously mitigated alongside the security threats that exist within the platforms.
This course will equip software architects with the necessary skills and expertise to design a secure application and service platform that provides services to edge devices, external and internal systems. This course is structured to be 4 days long to allow sufficient hands-on time for the participants to practice what they learn in the course using appropriate tools.
This course is part of the Cybersecurity series, Software Systems series, Digital Strategy & Leadership series as well as Graduate Certificate in Securing Ubiquitous Systems series offered by NUS-ISS.
