Secure Code Training for Developers

The 2024 cybersecurity training must-have

The biggest threat to your cybersecurity is your own developers' blindspots. That's why Cydril Sergeant's award-winning e-learning environment equips your developers with the secure code best practices they need to beat hackers at their own game.

A lot learned. Need to work on my thought process, validate input/output and never assume.

It's not a question of if a cyber attack will target your business, but when

Every 40 seconds, a business falls prey to cyber attacks.
How do you know that you won't be next?


Businesses can’t keep sacrificing security for features and speed

With increasingly shorter lead times, constantly changing requirements, and fiercer competition than ever, developers are under pressure to constantly deliver software as fast as possible.

  • Most software developers have not undergone secure code training and include the same vulnerabilities in code over and over
  • Neither developers nor application security teams have time to check huge amounts of code to find bugs
  • As a result, companies rely heavily on tools like firewalls, antivirus, intrusion detection, endpoint protection, SAST, DAST, etc

Using cybersecurity tools and automation isn't enough

Automation and cybersecurity tools are supposed to reduce the workload for developers and application security staff by scanning, detecting, and mitigating software vulnerabilities, however:

  • Studies show that these tools can only discover 45% of overall vulnerabilities
  • They can also produce false positives*, leading to unnecessary concern, delays, and rework
  • …or even worse, *false negatives’, creating an extremely dangerous false sense of security

The true cost of bugs for your company

It only takes a single, exploitable software vulnerability for a hacker to cause irreparable damage to a business.

  • The average cost of a data breach is now USD 4.24 million
  • Lost business (customer turnover and the cost of acquiring new clients) accounts for 38% of data breach costs
  • 60% of companies go out of business within six months of experiencing a cyberattack

Your dev team keeps writing software vulnerabilities into code & they don't even know it

That's why CydrilSergeant upskills your developers with secure code training so they can become your business' first line of defense against the disastrous financial, legal, and reputational damages of cyberattacks
