Secure Software Development and Role Based Training for IT Staff

To effectively protect your organization, developers, coders, and programmers must understand secure software development practices. These technical professionals need security awareness training that speaks their language and places security issues within the IT and development context they understand and work within every day. Global Learning Systems provides role based and security awareness training for technical staff on the front lines of protecting your organization.

Secure Software Development Training

With the increasing emphasis on full stack security and multiple points of responsibility for compliance, Secure Coding with the OWASP Top 10 2017 is an innovative approach to secure software development training.

Focusing on each of the 10 most current risk areas identified by OWASP, this training in secure practices has more technical depth and opportunity to practice key concepts than the typical one-hour awareness program, but takes much less time than an average hackathon. The content goes beyond security awareness training to change developer behavior and improve the security posture of an organization. There are also challenging scenarios and hands-on opportunities to practice secure software development throughout the course.

The course focuses on the importance of developing an information security mindset for developers that will carry through to their coding activities. The course and its accompanying resources help establish secure software development as the foundation for your security programs.
