Security Innovation Launches New Approach to Cybersecurity Trainings with Introduction of CMD+CTRL Base Camp

One experiential learning platform designed to meet the training needs for those that build, operate and defend software

WILMINGTON, Mass., April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Security Innovation, the authority in software security assessment and training, today announced the release of CMD+CTRL Base Camp, a SaaS experiential learning platform for building a team of security-savvy talent. Designed to meet the needs of software-focused teams, CMD+CTRL Base Camp subscriptions provide access to the entire CMD+CTRL library of over 250 courses and labs, along with the full suite of CMD+CTRL cyber ranges.

CMD+CTRL Base Camp offers a progressive combination of different learning modalities, such as courses, labs and cyber ranges, in a single interface that takes users on a learning journey customized to their role, ability, and technology. Learners obtain the security skills to truly reduce software risk, not simply check off compliance or solve puzzles. The training also enables learners in various job roles such as developer, tester, architect, cybersecurity professional, etc. to work together with the common goal of reducing organizational risk.

Utilizing the three learning modalities together creates the capabilities and motivation that one modality alone cannot. CMD+CTRL Base Camp courses provide the knowledge foundation while labs provide the hands-on skills for incorporating that knowledge and the real-world cyber ranges provide the eye-opening hacker view of the real-world implications of software vulnerabilities.

“Existing security training solutions are siloed, incongruent, or focused on a single functional area such as coding,” said Ed Adams, CEO at Security Innovation. “Multimodal training is necessary to maximize risk reduction as well as assemble a team of competent, security-minded people to secure modern software from source code to deployment and beyond.”

CMD+CTRL Base Camp offers numerous benefits for cybersecurity professionals who are dedicated to progressing their skills and companies looking to build security-savvy teams:

  • Integrates data-driven insight of training progress and competencies gained, providing a baseline against other roles and industries.

  • Maximizes retention and skills building through proven learning model that has successfully served millions of users to date.

The Future of CMD+CTRL Base Camp
New features expected later this year include industry baselining to provide improved reporting on learner progress, skills assessments to identify gaps, learning analytics to measure program success, badges and certificates to motivate learners, and pre-loaded learning pathways to further facilitate journey building. For the user, CMD+CTRL Base Camp will offer self-assessment, more content across the platform, automated scoring, improved integration of labs into journeys and the ability to share and show badges and certificates.
