When industry professionals identify a need and leverage their expertise to craft a solution, great things happen. This is how both HackEDU and Security Journey came to be.
Three seasoned software engineers and security practitioners, including Chris Romeo – an application security expert who built a successful application security training program at Cisco – went on separate missions to reduce software vulnerabilities through effective training. From these efforts, two industry leading training solutions were created - HackEDU and Security Journey.
When adopted, each solution enabled software development teams in organizations of all sizes to deliver safer, less vulnerable applications. Organizations flourished in a more secure application development environment, and both HackEDU and Security Journey enjoyed great success.
Industry leaders took note, and saw an undeniable synergy between the two organizations. They knew this synergy could be leveraged to bring to market an even better, stronger application security solution for companies of all sizes - from lean startups to Fortune 5s.
The two application security training companies became one in spring 2022 when HackEDU acquired Security Journey and adopted the Security Journey name. Today, Security Journey offers robust application security education tools to help developers and the entire SDLC team not just recognize and understand vulnerabilities and threats, but proactively mitigate these risks.
The knowledge learners acquire in our programs go beyond helping learners code more securely – it turns everyone in the SDLC into security champions. Organizations with teams of security champions develop a security-first mindset that helps them deliver safer, more secure applications.
This was the dream our company founders originally envisaged. It is a reality we proudly deliver to customers around the world every day.
