Unit 3 – Question 1

  1. Find and share a resource to support teaching students in secondary years about security in apps (e.g. whatsapp security). Include a brief description.

Application security (short AppSec) includes all tasks that introduce a secure software development life cycle to development teams. Its final goal is to improve security practices and, through that, to find, fix and preferably prevent security issues within applications. It encompasses the whole application life cycle from requirements analysis, design, implementation, verification as well as maintenance.

Activity 2: Design an App – Security Considerations

In this lesson, we extend on the classroom activity of designing an app or digital solution to solve a problem. We have provided a list of elements that could be considered during the design phase rather than being added in on completion. Students will need to draw on their knowledge of cybersecurity elements – encryption/decryption, privacy, data security and ethics.
