Wilmington, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES


WILMINGTON, Mass., Oct. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Security Innovation, the leader in software security assessments and training, today announced it would be offering free training to help build AppSec skills based on the popular OWASP Top 10 and MITRE ATT&CK frameworks.

To show off the latest addition to CMD+CTRL Base Camp, the industry’s most popular security training platform for software teams, the company is offering a series of newly released Lab Journeys designed to build skills quickly through immersion. These practice scenarios are a key component of Security Innovation’s unique Learn Practice Master model. Learners are trained to spot vulnerabilities and eradicate them to defend software against attacks, all done in completely safe simulation container.

Program details:

    • OWASP Top 10: goes beyond simple vulnerability explanation and are demonstrated on deployed software applications.

About CMD+CTRL Base Camp
CMD+CTRL Base Camp goes beyond the code to offer cybersecurity professionals a combination of different learning modalities (online courses, labs, and cyber ranges) in a single interface that takes users on a learning journey appropriate to their role, level, and technology. Learners obtain the security skills and capabilities they need to build, operate and defend software, 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 and cloud vulnerabilities.
