Security Innovation launches monthly web application

WILMINGTON, Mass., April 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Security Innovation, an authority on software security ratings, today announced that it will be offering monthly bootcamps in an effort to make security more accessible and consumable. The lightweight yet impactful version of its enterprise CMD+CTRL platform combines online training with live cybergaming challenges to build skills that last.

This specially designed program takes a Attack and defend approach to quickly strengthen teams on software security. It starts with a live, instructor-led hacking event featuring Shred Skateboards cyber range, a vulnerable e-commerce application. The bootcamp continues with self-paced online courses, training videos, and dozens of hands-on security challenges on the Shred site. Players walk away with enhanced AppSec skills and detailed reports (and attitude) to prove it.

“Research continues to show that technical professionals learn and retain their skills best using a hands-on environment they are familiar with,” said Lisa Parcella, vice president of product management and marketing at Security Innovation. “This program allows them to do this while developing a broader perspective of fundamental security activities.”

While the complete OWASP Top Ten is covered, each week learners are coached on specific threats. They put into practice in the cyber range what they learn in the course modules and training videos. Participants leave with a clear understanding of how web applications are exploited and the skills needed to find and prevent common vulnerabilities.

No prior security experience is required. This 30-day bootcamp includes courses and cybergaming challenges of varying difficulty. Plus, it’s fully supported by experts and help resources, ensuring that participants of all skill levels can develop their skills.

Upcoming schedule:

  • 29/04 – 27/05
  • 28/05 – 23/06
  • 24/06 – 23/07
