ECDE: Certified DevSecOps Engineer

This course is a hands-on, instructor-led comprehensive DevSecOps certification program that helps professionals build the essential skills needed to design, develop, and maintain secure applications and infrastructure. Over 3 days we will cover the integration and automation of all the widely used DevSecOps tools, processes, and methodologies that help organizations quickly build secure applications. The course trains students in DevSecOps for cloud-based networks, including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

Benefits of ECDE?

  • The ECDE covers both on-premises and cloud-native environments (including AWS Cloud and Microsoft Azure) 
  • Covers both application and infrastructure DevSecOps of onpremises and cloud-native platforms
  • Covers security aspects and tools integration at all eight DevOps stages
  • Mapped with real-time job roles and the responsibilities of DevSecOps Engineers
  • The information provided in the E|CDE course is complemented with labs to help learners hone their practical skills and become industry ready (70% of the curriculum dedicated to labs and 30% to theory).
  • This course teaches students how to use various DevSecOps tools and create secure code throughout the software development life cycle.
  • Participants gain familiarity with DevSecOps tools that enable the secure development of software and web applications, both on premises and in the cloud.
  • The ECDE course focuses on application DevSecOps and also provides insights into infrastructure DevSecOps.
  • The integration of today’s most popular and important tools is illustrated at each stage of the DevOps life cycle.
  • The ECDE program helps DevSecOps engineers develop and enhance their knowledge and skills in securing applications at all stages of the DevOps pipeline.

How E|CDE Can Secure AWS Cloud

AWS offers a set of tools and services to identify vulnerabilities at different stages of the development life cycle. The E|CDE program covers how to integrate all the necessary AWS tools to identify security vulnerabilities at various stages of the DevSecOps pipeline.

How E|CDE Can Secure Microsoft Azure

Azure DevSecOps combines GitHub and Azure products and services to help DevOps and SecOps teams collaborate in building more secure apps as new types of cyberattacks rise. The E|CDE program covers all the latest tools and integrations in the Azure DevSecOps module.


Who will benefit from ECDE?

  • C|ASE-certified professionals
  • Application security professionals
  • DevOps engineers
  • Software engineers and testers
  • IT security professionals
  • Cybersecurity engineers and analysts
  • Anyone with prior knowledge of application security who wants to build their career in DevSecOps


Students should have an understanding of application security concepts.

Course content - what will you learn?

  • Understand DevOps security bottlenecks and discover how the culture, philosophy, practices, and tools of DevSecOps can enhance collaboration and communication across development and operations teams.
  • Understand the DevSecOps toolchain and how to include security controls in automated DevOps pipelines.
  • Integrate Eclipse and GitHub with Jenkins to build applications.
  • Align security practices like security requirement gathering, threat modeling, and secure code reviews with development workflows.
  • Integrate threat modeling tools like Threat Dragon, ThreatModeler, and Threatspec; manage security requirements with Jira and Confluence; and use Jenkins to create a secure CI/CD pipeline.
  • Understand and implement continuous security testing with static, dynamic, and interactive application security testing and SCA tools (e.g., Snyk, SonarQube, StackHawk, Checkmarx SAST, Debricked, WhiteSource Bolt). 
  • Integrate runtime application selfprotection tools like Hdiv, Sqreen, and Dynatrace that protect applications during runtime with fewer false positives and remediate known vulnerabilities.
  • Integrate SonarLint with the Eclipse and Visual Studio Code IDEs.
  • Implement tools like the JFrog IDE plugin and the Codacy platform.
  • Integrate automated security testing into a CI/CD pipeline using Amazon CloudWatch; Amazon Elastic Container Registry; and AWS CodeCommit, CodeBuild, CodePipeline, Lambda, and Security Hub.
  • Implement various automation tools and practices, including Jenkins, Bamboo, TeamCity, and Gradle.
  • Perform continuous vulnerability scans on data and product builds using automated tools like Nessus, SonarCloud, Amazon Macie, and Probely.
  • Implement penetration testing tools like- gitGraber and GitMiner to secure CI/CD pipelines.
  • Use AWS and Azure tools to secure applications.
  • Integrate automated tools to identify security misconfigurations that could expose sensitive information and result in attacks.
  • Understand the concept of infrastructure as code and provision and configure infrastructure using tools like Ansible, Puppet, and Chef.
  • Audit code pushes, pipelines, and compliance using logging and monitoring tools like Sumo Logic, Datadog, Splunk, the ELK stack, and Nagios.
  • Use automated monitoring and alerting tools (e.g., Splunk, Azure Monitor, Nagios) and create a real-time alert and control system.
  • Integrate compliance-as-code tools like Cloud Custodian and the DevSec framework to ensure that organizational regulatory or compliance requirements are met without hindering production.
  • Scan and secure infrastructure using container and image scanners (Trivy and Qualys) and infrastructure security scanners (Bridgecrew and Checkov).
  • Integrate tools and practices to build continuous feedback into the DevSecOps pipeline using Jenkins and Microsoft Teams email notifications.
  • Integrate alerting tools like Opsgenie with log management and monitoring tools to enhance operations performance and security.
