Does It Feel Like Everyone’s Speaking
a Different Language About Security?

If you want to get everyone on the same page when it comes to security, you need training that is:

  • Broad enough to promote security awareness across the entire organization—because anyone with an email address is a potential vulnerability.
  • But it also needs to be specific enough to train software developers, testers, and managers on secure coding practices—because generic “don’t click on phishing links” training won’t teach anyone how to actually ship secure software.
  • And, most challenging of all, it needs to be engaging, motivating, and fun to watch—because you can’t turn knowledge into results if the training is putting people to sleep.

Security Journey certificate levels (belts)That’s why Security Journey is built to do all three. With our program, your team members earn Security Belts—from white to yellow, green, brown, and the coveted black—as they watch videos, demonstrate understanding, and ultimately complete tasks that will keep your company secure long after they finish the training.

White Belt will provide the foundational awareness you need across the entire organization, while Yellow, Green, Brown, and Black dive deeper into the role-specific training your technical team members need to keep your products secure.

The Belt progression will keep your team engaged and motivated by giving them a clear end goal with rewards and recognition along the way.

How Security Journey Increases
Awareness and Keeps Developers Interested

Each Security Belt level will guide your team through a series of quick, engaging videos and assessments that build a foundation of security awareness and skills. Both you and your team members can see their progress tracked in real time as they advance.

A Complete Curriculum for
Creating a Self-Sustaining Security Culture

The pace of change in application security is staggering. As the number of frameworks, languages, and technologies rise year after year, so do the number of vulnerabilities and attacks hackers can use to breach products and sensitive data.

Tools will come and go, but the processes and culture your organization builds around security can last forever. That’s why our Security Belt program is designed to help you build a security culture that will sustain itself no matter how quickly things continue to change.

Security White Belt Gives Your Team a Shared Security Vocabulary and Foundation

White BeltIt’s hard to increase security awareness when people don’t even know the same terminology. White Belt gives employees a shared foundation that will improve communication and prioritize security throughout your entire organization. The lessons and assessments will take them through:

  • Critical security concepts, terms, and fundamentals like: vulnerabilities, the secure development lifecycle, privacy and customer data protection, OWASP, open source / third party software threats, and more
  • The most common types of attacks and attackers
  • The threat landscape in IoT, Cloud, Mobile, and bleeding-edge technologies

Security Yellow Belt Gives Developers In-Depth Understanding of the Principles, Tools, and Processes That Will Keep Your Products Secure

Yellow BeltAfter White Belt sets the foundation, Yellow Belt takes your technical staff deeper into the topics that are most critical to keeping your products secure. By the end, they’ll understand:

  • The most important principles of security: secure design, input validation, authentication, authorization, logging, and cryptography
  • How to combat the most common and dangerous kinds of attacks: OWASP Top 10, buffer overflows, denial of service, and the social engineering techniques hackers use to breach systems
  • The tools and processes that will uncover and mitigate vulnerabilities: threat modeling, static and dynamic analysis, vulnerability scanning, pen testing, and more

Security Green Belt Offers Testers, Developers, and Managers the Job-Specific Security Knowledge They Need to Thrive in Their Roles

Green BeltDifferent roles have different responsibilities—that’s why Green Belt lets your team members dive deep into the security skills and tools that apply to the specific roles they have in your organization.

  • Developers will learn exactly how to write secure code and catch errors early
  • Testers will be able to use white and black box techniques, pen testing, and other critical testing tools and processes that dramatically reduce vulnerabilities
  • Managers will learn how to lead their teams to improved security, allocate the right resources, and give developers and testers the support they need to thrive

Security Brown and Black Belts Transform Awareness into Action and Sustain Your Organization’s Security Culture

Brown BeltThe Brown and Black Belt modules walk your team through performing actual security tasks to strengthen your software development lifecycle and security processes. They’ll be able to:

  • Take on leadership roles in your organization’s security culture and sustain its growth long after they’ve completed the training program
  • Improve the systems and processes that strengthen your application security
  • Mentor and teach other developers as they begin their own security journey

Plus…Keep Security Top-of-Mind with Security Drips

You can also automatically enroll your team in Security Drips—weekly bite-sized lessons they can consume in 15 minutes or less to stay engaged with security year-round.

Each Security Drip is delivered via email, complete with a short 2-3 minute video and security experiment that will give them hands-on experience.

It’s Not All on You—Security Can Finally Be Everyone’s Job

Chris Romeo
A Note from Security Journey Founder Chris Romeo

If you’re in charge of finding quality security training for your developers, you’ve got a tall order on your hands. I know because I’ve been in your shoes.

Before Security Journey, I was the Chief Security Advocate at a Fortune 100 company with over 60,000 employees. My task? Finding a training program that would actually improve our security culture.

The obvious answer was a video on-demand training program. Live seminars were expensive and took people away from work for an entire week. Not to mention they often just left developers wondering “Now what?” once they ended.

But there was one big problem: every video training program I demoed was about as exciting as waiting in line at the DMV. They put me to sleep in minutes—and security was my job!

If I couldn’t stand watching hours of people retreading the same dated material off teleprompters, there was no way 20,000+ developers in our company were going to get through it. They’d revolt! I’d be lucky to be alive if I wasted that many people’s time.

So I assembled a team and built what became the world’s largest security program inside our organization:

  • We replaced scripts and teleprompters with passionate experts having engaging conversations about security that actually related to the work developers and testers were doing every day.
  • We made videos and assessments they could progress through 15 minutes at a time, without disrupting their workflow.
  • And we created a unique Security Belt structure that made advancing your security skills fun and rewarding.

The results? Over 20,000 employees went through the program—and it wasn’t even mandatory.

I wanted to rebuild that same level of high-quality, engaging security training from the ground up and make it available to all companies, and that’s exactly what we’ve built with Security Journey.

Every video, assessment, and lesson was created with teams like yours in mind, and our technology and delivery system makes getting started as quick and easy as possible (even for large organizations).

I’d love to show you how Security Journey can transform your organization’s security culture and awareness. Just click here to get in touch and I can personally take you on a quick tour of everything the program has to offer and answer any questions you have.

Remember, security is a journey—not a destination.
