Case Study

Hours less time spent actively managing, tracking and reporting training completion

SOC2 compliance training implementation

Before HackEDU, administrators were spending tens of hours every year manually managing, tracking and reporting on training to meet the compliance requirements. The quality of metrics that they were tracking was very rudimentary, and didn’t provide detailed insight into developers’ abilities.

With HackEDU: administrative platform makes it easy to track the progress that developers have made on training, and to automatically send reminders to developers to complete their training. The reporting provides clear insights not only on which lessons developers have completed, but also about their level of proficiency in each.

HackEDU Engagement Tools

Help Your Teams Stay Engaged & Make
Secure Coding Training a Habit

Software developers are under more pressure than ever to ship code faster.
Because of that, they may need incentives to prioritize completing secure coding training on time. The HackEDU platform has several options to make this happen.

  • GitHub Training Check When email reminders and Slack notifications don’t work, this may help. (Think of this as your last-resort, we-really-mean-it option.)

Case Study

Increased developer engagement and better coding practices to eliminate vulnerabilities

PCI DSS Requirement 6.5 secure coding training

“While all the developers had completed their video-based secure coding training, there were patterns in their coding practices that really concerned the company. … Traction Guest selected HackEDU as the partner to help them solve the problem of providing secure coding training that was engaging, and that would help them easily show that they’d met their compliance requirements.”

81% of Vulnerabilities Found & Fixed Correctly

↑ (Up from just 14%)

“Before training, the developers averaged a total score of 19% and found & fixed an average of just 14% of the vulnerabilities. 58% of developers were unable to successfully find & fix just one vulnerability.

After the training and approximately 9 months after the initial assessment the developers were given another assessment. This time the average score was 85%, up from just 19%, and the developers found 81% of the vulnerabilities.”
