Our mission is for secure coding to become second nature for developers. By combining hands-on skills with an understanding of the hacking mindset, our blended learning journey offers instantly actionable best-practices. Participants begin with their preferred way of studying: through the e-learning subscription, or the live / online instructor-led training.
The pre-course phase draws a baseline – this is where the learning journey starts. It puts the experience in context while boosting motivation for broadening the participant’s existing skillset.
These elective steps are designed to measure the progress of participants after the live classroom training is complete.
The ability to demonstrate a deep understanding of the discussed subjects is essential for participants. Moreover, business leaders and Learning & Development professionals need to be able to measure and track progress. As education continues through our blended learning journey, developers can confirm the knowledge they gained through post-course qualification assessments. Quizzes, drills, and further challenges in the same lab environment are involved in this test. Passing grants a formal title of qualification in the course curriculum, successful participants can also access the live-score based readiness program and the Certification – through the e-learning subscription.
Cydrill Certified Secure Coder titles in certain programming languages are earnt in the Certification phase by completing continuous drills and maintaining a live score. Once reaching a threshold, the participant is automatically certified. Scores are aging over time, so refreshing and completing previous labs again and new drills to reinforce the knowledge and reach the certification threshold is paramount.
This gamified certification process catches and holds participants’ attention and ensures that developers are up to date with cyber security threats and well-prepared to implement protective best-practices. The dashboard provides an overview and gives leaders control over achievements within smaller groups and the whole company.
