Certifications for app security?

I have some experience in SWE but want to focus more on secure coding, app security or maybe DevSecOps

I just passed Security+ (Sy0-601) and was wondering what are some good app security or secure coding certs? I was looking at CASE from EC-Council or GWEB from SANS but not really sure what’s best



As an Application Security Engineer, there aren’t really any good certs. Also AppSec isn’t an entry lvl field. My co-workers all come from dev jobs as do I and now do AppSec. The only relevant cert we look for is the OSCP.


I enjoyed OSWE. Wouldn’t call it all-encompassing, but def some relevant appsec stuff in there.
