Improve secure coding skills with AppSec training

Learn how you can use AppSec training to boost security programs, build a competitive advantage, and meet compliance.   

First thing first, why do we know so much?

Research is critical to our mission at Security Compass. We actively engage and foster debate both inside and outside the security community to discuss critical issues that either face us today or will soon emerge. 

Treat training as a process

The idea is simple. Training developers on secure coding practices will reduce vulnerabilities. When done correctly, everyone wins. Developers improve their skills while eliminating unexpected security rework and customers gain confidence in their supply chain. In practice, many organizations miss the benefits by treating training as an event instead of a process.

“Tailored AppSec training allows us to spend more time building features that drive value to our customer base."

Train developers to secure code from the start

When security vulnerabilities surface after code is tested, it’s almost too late in the cycle.  Developer-centric training can enable overwhelmed developers to defend against security threats from the start.   Learn how  (1.3 min video)

Create a culture of security

Explore how a multinational software company reduced the number of hours an average learner spent on training from 21 hours to 8-12 hours.

 

By upgrading their software training program they:

  • Built a security culture, stayed competitive, and maintained their brand value
  • Increased employee engagement
  • Improved security posture & ensured compliance

Influence, don't preach

Listen to Mark Timms, Behavioral Scientist in Cybersecurity, caution against preaching security. To influence developers, champions need to be empathetic,  identify what’s happening and weave in security while keeping the system’s limitations in mind.

Build a competitive advantage with accreditation

The benefits of accreditation to individuals are obvious. Accreditation provides evidence of expertise.  Accredited developers demonstrate a commitment to secure development. This can provide organizations with a competitive advantage with customers concerned with supply chain security.
