The goal of this course is to provide a quick overview of Static Application Security Testing (SAST).


It should be a great starting point if you are curious about SAST or want to be better prepared to explain how your organization might benefit from implementing a SAST program.  Think of it as what you would need to pitch the idea or give an “elevator speech”.


By the time we finish this course, you should be comfortable answering:

  • What is SAST?
  • How does it work?
  • Why it is important tool for increasing the level of secure code?
  • How can SAST be implemented?
  • What should you expect when using SAST?

Gain valuable insights on:

  • How SAST works
  • Steps to help ensure a successful implementation
  • What to expect from SAST
  • Areas of the OWASP Top Ten addressed by SAST
  • Benefits to expect from SAST
  • Areas of caution and things to be aware of


Get started today!  Find out how you can start to bring automated security testing into your organization and begin finding code issues early.  The earlier you find a security vulnerability, the easier and cheaper it is to fix it.  Find issues early and don’t let them become production vulnerabilities later on!


Let POC help you get the skills and knowledge needed to advance your security skills and help protect your organization!
