Software Security Course Interactivity

Purpose-Built to Change Behavior

Software applications do not operate in isolation, but rather in a complex and hostile ecosystem. As an example, for developers to protect code, they need to look beyond syntax and understand why a defect is a vulnerability and the role external factors play. Experiencing a vulnerability from a holistic (and attacker) perspective builds situational awareness and drives behavior change – your ultimate goal.

Build Skills that Stick

Mayer’s Cognitive Theory reinforces that learning is an active process of filtering, selecting, organizing, and integrating information. Our courses aren’t voice-over-text, task repetition, or based on remedial “line of code” hunting. Our multimodal approach encourages teams to think more critically, consider the bigger picture, and realize the consequences of haphazard software development and operations.

All of our activities fall into Absorb, Do, and Connect categories. The goal is to elevate learning from passive reading to active seeking, selecting, simulating, and experiencing.

ABSORB

ABSORB

Obtaining essential information to perform a job function is important, but it doesn’t have to be boring! We use humor and real-world scenarios to keep content engaging and relatable

DO

DO

Transform knowledge into skills via hands-on exercises: drag-and-drop, code commit, puzzles, spot the offending code, and find-the-fix. Coupled with our cyber range, the power is unrivaled.

CONNECT

CONNECT

Linking skills to the work environment drive behavior change and attitude. Branched learning and multiple response pathways force learners to reflect and provide feedback at key decision points.
