Short summary

Software security is no longer optional. Headlines have put pressure on businesses to strike threats with iron fists. Hackers on the other end, are finding alternative ways of accessing private and confidential data. Only a combination of static, dynamic and hybrid application scanning tools, combined with developer training, standards and security intelligence, can improve security in the software development life cycle. We call it DevSecOps, the philosophy that helps detect and prevent software vulnerabilities even before code is written until the software hits end of life.

Make sure that you are capable of fending off cyber-attacks. Equip yourself with the latest knowledge on DevSecOps, so you understand how to better protect your software. This course aims at a hands-on approach to propose solutions for the challenges with good practices, and tooling.


DevSecOps, Shift left, Security as Code are some of the interlacing paradigm shifts aiming to deliver secure software early and often. The DevSecOps practitioner course is carefully designed to help you understand the principles, practices, tools, and techniques that are essential for any organization to get started with and mature organically in DevSecOps. This 16 hour corse is designed to be highly interactive, and hands on by DevSecOps veterans that bring their lessons working from the trenches.
