Applied Cloud Computing and Big Data

The mobile and connected world of today generates a large amount of data that needs to be managed, analysed, and linked. This is often done on the cloud. The development, deployment, and management of this is called Cloud Computing. The purpose of this course is to offer a wide background about designing, developing, deploying, testing, and monitoring a cloud solution, specifically with a focus on big data problems.

Introduction to Security in the Software Development Lifecycle

The purpose of this course is to introduce security practices within the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) at the requirements, design, implementation, verification, and after release stages of software development. This course is the guide to the cybersecurity issues arising throughout the entire development process. We consider the development from the security perspective from the beginning stage until the final release and beyond. The course is adapted to give a solid introduction to non-security-experts mainly and addresses both how professionals (developers, managers, decision-makers) can utilize security to improve (software-based) products/services, and how they are affected by security issues and challenges. Whether you are a software developer in a bank or telecom company, or you are a product manager in a gaming company, this course will be relevant for you.
