Security Innovation makes Security Awareness Training content free to the public

Wilmington, MA – June 2, 2020, – Security Innovation, an authority in software security assessments and training, is making a subset of its security training content available on its community site.

To complement the short but hard-hitting courses, there are 2-minute videos ideal for those who want baseline or refresher training. Choose from among 35 free training assets with topics such as:

  • Data Privacy
  • Email, Mobile, and Password Security
  • PCI and GDPR Compliance

In addition to security awareness training, Security Innovation offers an expansive computer-based training library that goes beyond coding to ensure all stakeholders involved with the building and operating of software applications and systems can reduce risk.
