An Introduction to Hands-On Training for More Secure Code

Presented by

Fletcher Heisler, Director of Developer Enablement

About this talk

Developers are under intense pressure to produce good code every day, whether they’re working on new features, making continuous improvements, or chipping away at security debt. In the race to meet deadlines, taking extra time to pause and work on improving their skills often means application security is an afterthought for developers. The good news? Initiating programs that train developers on secure coding practices and integrating those programs into everyday tasks means less disruption to everyday work, and more secure code But it isn’t enough to simply offer bland multiple-choice quizzes or recycled tutorial-style videos; hands-on training programs in the languages developers use most make a lasting impact. Veracode Security Labs offers just this. It’s different from other educational tools on the market, leveraging real-world applications in contained environments. Once logged in, developers can practice exploiting and fixing the flaws that they face every day. This level of hands-on interaction is invaluable to helping developers understand – and retain – the steps they need to take to write more secure code, saving your organization time and money down the road. Join this webinar to gain an understanding of: •How our offering is different than other developer security training programs in the market •The unique gamification aspects of the solution through live, real-world examples •How you can satisfy compliance requirements through ongoing AppSec training
