Training plays a critical role in software security because developers often start with little security knowledge. This lack of knowledge can be augmented through use of automated tools and dedicated security professionals to discover vulnerabilities, but security personnel can be challenging to scale and tools cannot identify many weaknesses.

Maybe you currently have some training in place, but it isn’t well received and seen more as a mandatory interruption rather than providing real value. Maybe the content doesn’t feel up to date or relevant to your team based on the technology frameworks they use. Other challenges include budget constraints, attendee participation, knowledge retention, training recurrence, tracking, and measuring general effectiveness.

This presentation will examine various approaches for providing application security training within your organization or team. We’ll look at how you can leverage free and low-cost content to get started with a limited budget, and examine pros/cons of various forms of training: instructor-led, computer-based training, hands-on labs, gamification, etc. We will detail actionable steps you can take to bootstrap, monitor, and maintain a customized program that builds lasting appsec knowledge in your organization.
