Use engaging demos. Capture developers’ attention with hacking demos. Not only will they learn more about the unethical hacker mindset they are up against, but they’ll also understand why they need to validate and sanitize input and think through what might happen if something were to break.
Consider online training. Although less interactive than instructor-led training, e-learning courses allow developers to participate in security training when they have time. E-learning is ideally suited for teaching certain complex material so that learners can review it again and again if needed.
Provide incentives. Encourage developers to make time for training by offering a reward for every course or series of courses completed.
Filling in your developers’ knowledge gaps can pay huge dividends. With the right security training, your developers can learn how to create code that’s both functional and secure, saving your organization a lot of time and effort.
Synopsys helps developers stay up to date with application security with both on-site and on-demand training.
