The free training courses are available via webcast and cover a variety of different topics, including SQL injection prevention to cross site request forgery. Each course is designed to help security experts develop their own internal training programs for use by product developers and others concerned about security.

 

The current course offerings: Product Penetration Testing 101, Cross Site Scripting (XSS) 101, and Secure Java Programming 101 - SAFECode will launch Secure Memory Handling in C 101, and Using Cryptography the Right Way.

Also, Hewlett-Packard and Trend Micro announced their partnership to defend against increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, ushering in a new phase in the current battle to defend sensitive information.
