SANS Securing the Human for Developers

Critical software systems have become prime targets for cyber-criminals. More than 80 percent of today’s security vulnerabilities are found in the application layer, and critical software systems are often the root cause of many data breaches and hacking attempts. Most common attacks are often caused by mistakes that occur when software is developed and deployed. To ensure the proper safety and security of your critical software systems, it is crucial that your employees involved in the software development process be well-versed in information security.

To address this need, CIS is proud to partner with the SANS Institute to offer our members Securing the Human for Developers (STH.Developer). STH.Developer provides the complete training solution you need to ensure your employees are effectively equipped to confront the data security problems and threats that uniquely affect software and web application development.


STH.Developer offers a comprehensive data security awareness program for software and web application development teams that specifically targets what is often the weakest link in security: the human.

  • STH.Developer includes 30+ specially designed training modules precisely tailored to the distinctive cybersecurity needs of software and web application development.
  • This program thoroughly addresses the multitude of industry guidelines, such as those established by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) – important recommendations that are simply not included in many traditional cybersecurity programs.
