Make security training less painful, with the manager in mind

Make security training less painful, with the manager in mind

If there’s one thing you can’t buy it's time, so why does training cost so much of it?

As a manager you understand the importance of training, especially when it’s related to something as detrimental as security, but spending a day and a half out of the office makes you question it, am I right?

The challenge is that you risk falling behind on work, you’re stretched for time enough as it is, but at the same time, can you really afford to miss the training?

The answer to that is no but of course you knew that already…

We’ve talked about the cost of time, what about money?

In 2018, an estimated global spend of $114 billion went on information technology security services and products, by 2019 this number was expected to reach the $124 billion mark!

It would appear that many people are not properly informed on the vast amount of training courses available to businesses of all sizes. If they were, the annual spend would fall well below the figures mentioned above.


Aside from the tangible elements involved in security training, there is another factor that’s not always addressed and that’s attitude.

If you’ve noticed team members turn their noses up at the sheer mention of security training, you’ll know what I’m talking about. But how can you look to change attitudes, when security training consists of day-long workshops and other mundane tasks?

I’m going to take a guess and say you’ve tried and tested all the traditional methods already, and now you’ve reached a point of hopelessness…

Whatever the case, there are ways around it. In the next section we’ll look at how to solve the obstacles mentioned above through the simplicity of CxCodebashing.

How CxCodebashing solves the problem for managers

Gone are the days of traditional classroom and video-based training. People want their information faster and things like technology have evolved to satisfy an on-demand culture. Everything we’ve ever wanted to know has become available at just the touch of a button, it’s amazing!

As a result, businesses have become increasingly fast-paced and new methods of working have been introduced to suit this way of life.

CxCodebashing helps by creating a security-centered culture, providing developers with hands-on, engaging and interactive training in addition to on-demand remediation support, so that they have the time to focus on what matters to them — speed and the amount of bugs in code.

In addition to all of these benefits, CxCodebashing is affordable and considerate of time spent.


Security needs to be considered at every stage of the SDLC


CxCodebashing ensures security is considered at the earliest stage, so that developers can reduce exposure from the get-go, creating less of a headache for the Dev’ org in the future.

By providing an on-demand bite-sized learning experience, you’ll be able to quickly raise the baseline AppSec knowledge across the entire development team.

Need measurable results to know that it’s working?

CxCodebashing provides metrics and assessments required to provide managers with full visibility over necessary improvements. And the best part of it all? It’s not too good to be true, visit our partner page for more information on how Checkmarx can change the way your business perceives security.
