Ruby on Rails Security Strategy (Downloadable Course)

Do you find it hard keeping up with Rails security?

You’re a busy developer, and you don’t have endless time for researching security. Making sense of the important security vulnerabilities can waste days or even weeks.

There are a lot of details out there, but not many solutions. Plenty of guides give you some bits and pieces of what to do, but leave out the most important thing — how to develop a whole security strategy.

What if you could move away from the firefighting and fiddling and create your own security strategy?

This guide

  • respects your time.
  • shows you how to maintain your security even when you and your team are busy.
  • will help you manage the big picture by making informed decisions.

It will cover the following topics:

  • Manual work is boring, automation is king, but in security both are needed to fix vulnerabilities.
  • SSL/TLS security needs to be maintained too, and while you’re at it, make sure it’s always used.
  • Emergencies happen, when they do you won’t have time to create a strategy for it anymore.
  • Some people will test your security, make sure they’ll tell you about it first.
  • Processes sound boring, but they will keep your software up to date.
  • You don’t necessarily need a security expert. Your team can do their own code reviews and audits. Start small to increase quality and security.
  • How to keep your codebase, your code repository organization and deployments secure.
  • Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) can happen easily, so develop a Content Security Policy for your safety net.
  • Your Rails 4 app prevents Content Sniffing and clickjacking, so you should know what it is.
  • The security of APIs is very different, so learn how to get it right.
  • Plus: Your work environment, habits and productivity.

If you are:

  • an experienced Rails developer, but you find it hard to keep up
  • a lead developer and your team generally keeps the app secure enough, but sometimes you feel there should be a system for how to keep up with security
  • a new Rails developer and need some guidance where to start

this guide is for you.

If you're not convinced that this will help you, read this introduction: A week with a Rails Security Strategy.
