Safety Innovation

An experiential learning platform designed to meet the training needs of those who create, operate and defend software

WILMINGTON, Mass., April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Security Innovation, the authority on software security assessment and training, today announced the release of CMD+CTRL Base Camp, a SaaS experiential learning platform to build a savvy talent-security team. Designed to meet the needs of software-focused teams, CMD+CTRL Base Camp subscriptions provide access to the entire CMD+CTRL library of over 250 courses and labs, plus the full suite of cyber CMD ranges +CTRL.

Basecamp CMD+CTRL offers a progressive combination of different learning modalities, such as lectures, labs, and cybergams, in a single interface that takes users through a personalized learning journey based on their role, abilities, and technology . Learners learn the security skills to truly reduce software risk, not just verify compliance or solve puzzles. The training also enables learners in various positions such as developer, tester, architect, cybersecurity professional, etc. to work together with the common goal of reducing organizational risk.

Using all three learning modalities together creates the capabilities and motivation that a single modality cannot. The CMD + CTRL Base Camp courses provide the knowledge base while the labs provide the practical skills to integrate this knowledge and the real-world cyber ranges provide a hackers’ eye-opening view of the real-world implications of software vulnerabilities.

“Existing security training solutions are siloed, incongruous, or focused on a single functional area such as coding,” said Ed Adams, CEO of Security Innovation. “Cross-modal training is necessary to maximize risk reduction as well as build a team of skilled, security-minded people to secure modern software from source code to deployment and beyond.”
