Bridging the Divide between Security and Development

Development teams want to release faster.
Security teams want to reduce vulnerabilities.

Security Journey bridges the gap for faster, more secure development by taking a targeted, vulnerability-driven approach to application security education. 

The AppSec Dilemma

We are currently in an application security dilemma that costs organizations millions of dollars annually.

From the growing number of vulnerabilities to the increasing pressure to release apps quicker, security and development teams must join forces to create secure applications.

Communicate. Collaborate.
Create Secure Applications.

Bridge the Divide Between Security and Development

At Security Journey, we believe communication is vital to building a bridge between security and development.

Our training programs are designed to improve developers' skills and educate all members involved in the development process, enabling them to create a secure culture and achieve measurable outcomes.

Our programs can be customized to meet your needs and span over multiple years.

We start with foundational content to ensure that all participants in the SDLC understand basic security concepts and the significance of implementing them to maintain the security of your applications and products.

Tip: If you don't already, consider a lunch and learn across your entire security and development team to discuss the content and how it pertains to your organization.

Here are two lessons from our foundational path you can share broadly across your organization to open the road to communication:
