Instructor-Led Training

Research Driven Content. Expert Delivery.

Leveraging knowledge attained from our Platform Centers of Excellence and application security assessment practice, we're always on top of the latest attack techniques and threatscape. Organizations like Symantec, BNSF Railway, NASDAQ, and others rely on this deep expertise to train them on building and maintaining secure software systems.

Funded by Microsoft and others, we conducted ground-breaking research resulting in the popular "How to Break Software Security" methodology and book. This was the foundation of our training program, which we've expanded to cover defensive topics for secure design and coding for our instructor-led training courses.

Features of our Instructor-Led Training

Our live, instructor-led training courses are often 1 to 2 full days and led by one of our experts covering popular topics such as the OWASP Top Ten, Attack Trends and Techniques, Test Techniques, and Secure Architecture and Design. We also cover topics related to PCI-DSS Compliance. Additional benefits of our instructor-led training include:

  • World-Class Instructors Who Walk the Walk: All courses are created and delivered by experts with development backgrounds who can speak to common software engineering scenarios. To keep their skills honed, each instructor is required to conduct ongoing research and security assessments for our clients.
  • Customizable and Flexible: While courses include planned topics, we often tailor content prior to class delivery or adapt in-class if students want to go deeper into certain areas. Content and labs are customizable for your environment, technologies, and capabilities. Courses are also also available as Virtual Classroom, ideal for shorter sessions on specialized or refresher topics.
  • Lab-Intensive: Use our pre-built applications or your own. Our instructors show what specific tools and techniques yield the most effective secure coding or testing based on each application.
  • Team-Oriented: ILT facilitates buy-in and team building. The deep technical and specialized skills developed also makes it easy to groom "security champions" that can serve as a mentor to the rest of your team.
