Security Aware Developer

Prevention is better than cure – creative safety workshops for application development teams


IMG_0096Application security maintenance encompassing only security verification and defect removal is inefficient and entails many additional costs (e.g. time devoted to removing defects or rebuilding the application) and potential troubles (e.g. undetected security errors).


If you agree that we should rather prevent and not only cure, then our approach should include all people involved in the application development process, making them aware of potential security problems and able to properly choose security measures at various levels.


This is the purpose of our workshops.


For whom?

Companies that produce software for their own needs (internal development, SaaS) or their clients’ needs (software house).


For what purpose?

  • Raising awareness and knowledge among programmers and project managers, architects, developers, and testers
  • Making the participants interested in application security problems
  • Awareness of a cause-and-effect relationship in the field of architecture and application security mechanisms
  • Treatment of causes, not symptoms
  • Reduction of costs related to the elimination of vulnerabilities


Workshop principles


  • Short, intensive meetings (max. 6 hrs)
  • Closed groups from one company
  • We discuss realistic attack scenarios involving the use of a series of security defects (kill-chain). This is to convince the participants that each element is important (defence in depth)
  • Together with a group, we create ideas how to secure a given system
  • Scenarios are selected according to a given client’s needs
  • Finally, we indicate the security strategies discussed earlier that can be implemented in the company’s projects
  • Interesting materials and additional exercises, directing the participants at safety-oriented approach
  • During the training there is time to address security issues encountered by the team


Participants receive:

  • Attractive printed training materials that support the training
  • Infographics describing a given problem
  • Innovative methods of exercise (adhesive inserts, exercises on gadgets, etc.)
  • In addition to exercises, the material contains a summary of the most important concepts, sources, and standards for application security


Benefits for the organization

  • Building security awareness at every level of the team’s structure
  • Triggering a bottom-up effect in accordance with the safe design idea
  • Involving defensive actions into the natural pattern of the team’s work
  • Lower costs of vulnerability removal
  • Report for the Employer describing the security status of the application the team is involved in, as well as and ideas for improvements in the area of corporate application security gathered from the training participants


The Trainer


  • Experienced and charismatic experts in the field of software security
  • Speakers at the largest international industry events
  • Practitioners implementing projects in SecuRing on a daily basics


So far we have trained over 300 participants at our Security Aware Developer workshop. Education of developers is the most frequently chosen option to complement our security tests, that’s why we have decided to include this workshop in our regular training offer.
