The requirements for secure software applications in companies are constantly increasing. Protecting data and securing systems against external attacks is becoming increasingly important -- and more complex. With our Security Champion training, we show software developers how they can consistently take security into account in their day-to-day work. The security of software applications can only be guaranteed in the future if developers build up their skills in a targeted manner.

This training course will qualify you as a security champion and make you an expert in the field of secure software development. We teach you the necessary knowledge and skills step by step so that you, as a developer, can advise your teams on security issues and point out potential security gaps. You will also practice the necessary hard and soft skills and learn how to successfully apply current security methods and suitable tools. The course content is geared towards the entire software development process and is combined with extensive practical phases.
