Hi, welcome to our Information Security Awareness course.

The essential objective of this course is to create awareness within the organization regarding various basic requirements of the standard & impart working knowledge on how these requirements can be interpreted to suit the organization’s processes, products, people & customers.

The employees in most companies don’t take Information security seriously – not only the top managers, but also their peers.

This is due to the fact that the employees usually do not understand what information security or business continuity is all about – in other words, you may have perfect policies and procedures, but simply pushing those to your internal email list won’t help. You need to explain to your colleagues why information security and business continuity are needed, and how to perform certain tasks – that’s the main purpose of awareness and training.

In this course, we will teach you how employees, business owners and other computer users are compromised in this digitally connected world and also teach you how to safeguard themselves and their organization's information asset against various attacks. 

  • It helps each and every employee of an organization on various security policy and its importance.
  • It helps HR managers to learn how to recruit as per ISO 27001:2013 guidelines and how to run an effective employee induction program for better information security awareness.
  • It helps IT managers to learn how to securely handle data, media containing data and IT devices to ensure organization's information safety.
  • It also helps the business continuity manager on how to handle disaster at an event of disaster.

You will be encouraged to practice what you have learned in a simulated environment via our practice "Audio Visual Exercise" session.

We have designed this course to enable each and every computer user to safeguard themselves and their organization against identity theft and other credential breach from unauthorized users via technical and non-technical attack methods.

By the end of this course, you will be familiar with how various types of technical and non-technical attack methods are performed and you will be fully equipped to defend and safeguard yourself and your organization's information asset against various real-time attack vectors.

This course has been specifically designed by a team of information security researchers who are acknowledged experts in their field.

This course has been designed to accelerate your learning process through the use of creative animations and easy to understand voice over narratives. Complex concepts have been broken down into easy to understand modules.

Together, our team will walk you through the entire learning process step by step.

This course is a must for every computer user of an organization.No prior training is required to take this course as we will start with the basics. We welcome anyone with a thirst for learning. 

We look forward to having you join us. In the meantime, please feel free to take a look at our demo tutorial and exercise before you purchase the full course.

About the course:

Welcome to this Introduction to Application Security! Whether you are looking to lay down a solid foundation for a successful career in AppSec, or whether you're simply wanting to learn how to apply security best practices to your applications, this course is for you.

By learning how to navigate practical resources and frameworks, and by learning how to apply them to real-world applications, you will be well on your way to building more secure software. This course introduces concepts for web, mobile, and cloud apps so that you can gain exposure to all three and identify the specialty that you are most interested in.

In addition, we discuss top risks to defend against, including hands-on demonstrations of how attacks could be carried out against vulnerable applications.


While some basic programming experience is required to follow along, you definitely do not need to be a programming expert. All you really need is a strong desire to learn!


Topics we will cover together:

  1. What AppSec is, including skill requirements for current job opportunities

  2. OWASP resources and the NICE Framework

  3. Critical concepts of AppSec

  4. Threat Modeling concepts and approaches

  5. The current state of web application security based on research and data

  6. OWAS Top 10 Web App Risks

  7. The current state of mobile application security based on research and data

  8. OWASP Top 10 Mobile App Risks

  9. The current state of cloud application security based on research and data

  10. Cloud access control and permissions

  11. Building secure APIs in the cloud

  12. AppSec testing methods and concepts

  14. How to handle open-source software with known vulnerabilities



My name is Christophe Limpalair, and I have helped thousands of individuals pass IT certifications and learn how to use the cloud for their applications. I got started in IT at the age of 11 and unintentionally fell into the world of cybersecurity.

As I developed a strong interest in programming and cloud computing, my focus for the past few years has been training thousands of individuals in small, medium, and large businesses (including Fortune 500) on how to use cloud providers (such as Amazon Web Services) efficiently.

I've taught certification courses such as the AWS Certified Developer, AWS Certified SysOps Administrator, and AWS Certified DevOps Professional, as well as non-certification courses such as Lambda Deep Dive, Backup Strategies, and others.

Working with individual contributors as well as managers, I realized that most were also facing serious challenges when it came to cybersecurity.

Digging deeper, it became clear that there was a lack of training for Application Security specifically. As we explore in the course with actual research and data, most production applications in the world today contain security flaws that are identified as being in the top 10 risks by OWASP. Those security flaws can potentially be used to exploit organizations as we see in the news on a far too frequent basis.

It's time to take security into our own hands and to learn how to build more secure software in order to help make the world a safer place! Join me in the course, and we'll do just that!

I welcome you on your journey to learning more about Application Security, and I look forward to being your instructor!

EC-Council’s Certified Chief Information Security Officer

EC-Council C|CISO practice exam

Created by Khiem Bui - CEH, CHFI, CEI, Security+, TOGAF, CISA, CISM and 2xAWS


Students: 2406, Price: $34.99

Students: 2406, Price:  Paid

The Certified CISO (CCISO) program is the first of its kind training and certification program aimed at producing top-level information security executives. The CCISO does not focus solely on technical knowledge but on the application of information security management principles from an executive management point of view. The program was developed by sitting CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs.

There are three cognitive levels tested on the CCISO exam but only two tested on the EISM exam:

  • Level 1 – Knowledge: This cognitive level of questions is used to recall memorized facts. This is the most basic cognitive level rarely accepted on certifications as it merely recognizes the candidate’s ability to memorize information. It can be effectively used when asking for basic definitions, standards or any concrete fact. This level appears on both the CCISO and EISM exam.

  • Level 2 – Application: This cognitive level of questions is used to identify the candidate’s ability to understand the application of a given concept. It differs from Knowledge based questions in the sense that it requires the understanding and correct applicability of a given concept – not just the concept itself. This type of question often quires additional context before the actual question is provided in the stem. This level appears on both the CCISO and EISM exam.

  • Level 3 – Analysis: This cognitive level of questions is used to identify the candidate’s ability to identify and resolve a problem given a series of variables and context. Analysis questions differ greatly from Application based questions in the sense that they require not only the applicability of a concept but also how a concept, given certain constrain can be used to solve a problem. This level appears on the CCISO and not on the EISM exam.
