The BBC, who have a very substantial investment in technology, were keen to improve the quality of software development: to instil developers with the mindset of taking greater responsibility for the quality of code being produced, and adopting industry best practices for secure coding within the context of the BBC's security strategy.
Specifically, JBI were asked to consider the BBC’s Application Security initiative.
Following a series of interviews with BBC Technical Leads, JBI Training proposed the syllabus for three courses aimed at supporting Security at three levels; Security Overview for all, Application Security for Developers, Application Security for Product Owners.
Courses were very short, ranging from half-day to two days long,
This strategic training programme needed to deliver the paradigm shift, to help developers move towards this quality mindset. To help achieve the paradigm shift charismatic, inspiring instructors were needed, with technical “gravitas”. JBI were able to provide that – and much more.
A consistent approach and skills have now been instilled and security is no longer an "after thought" .
JBI offers a full range of Application Security and Secure coding training courses -these are PCI/DSS compliant courses that follow OWASP standards, including courses developed specifically for .NET Developers or Java Developers, depending on your requirements.
