Employees are a fundamental component of software security. Gartner points out that “humans, with all of their inherent strengths and weaknesses, play an undeniable role in an organization’s overall security and risk posture.”* So if you’re struggling to make security a priority within your team, you’re not alone.
According to (ISC)2, there will be a 20% increase in software security jobs—from 1.5 million jobs in 2015 to 1.8 million jobs in 2022.
According to 451 Research, 19% of ~800 organizations listed security awareness training ineffectiveness or difficulty as a top information security pain point.

Who develops our eLearning lessons?
Every course is designed and taught by top experts in the field, so you know the information you get is current, practical, and applicable. Let us introduce you.
I believe education is a key factor in a robust, agile secure development life cycle. My aim is to bring my defensive and offensive security experience to Synopsys eLearning and empower developers with the education they need.
Building modern, developer-friendly security solutions makes me tick. I’ve helped teams identify and remediate flaws in complex systems. My aim is to share my knowledge with Synopsys and give developers an edge over their adversaries.
My passion is training developers. I volunteer for the OWASP Foundation, and I’ve written many publications. I love bringing my network of experience to Synopsys eLearning and building a learning community around secure development.
As a developer, I’ve built vulnerability remediation tools. As a researcher, I’ve found critical vulnerabilities. As a leader, I’ve raised awareness on construction techniques. Now I’m working with Synopsys to share security knowledge.
Training tailored to every role in the SDLC
Synopsys eLearning enables curriculum provisioning by role, team, or project.
As modern users depend more on applications, they demand more user interface capabilities. New features mean new security pitfalls for developers. Synopsys offers courses on defensive programming, web frameworks, and more.
Applications are only as strong as their back end. It’s difficult to keep up with server-side programming languages, web server technologies, and database technologies. Synopsys offers courses on SAML, MongoDB, and more.
Enterprise developers bear the responsibility of providing customers with new technical capabilities, such as cloud integration, without introducing security concerns. Synopsys offers courses on COBOL, C/C++, Java, and more.
Modern users are dependent on mobile devices and apps. While mobile apps present opportunities, they also create unique security challenges. Synopsys offers courses on defensive programming for iOS, Android, and more.
Functional testing, or software security testing that extends beyond positive testing, is a critical part of the secure development life cycle. Synopsys offers courses on software security testing strategy, basics of software requirements, and more.
Nearly 50% of defects in software are caused by flaws in the software design. Finding flaws in design is less expensive, invasive, and time-consuming than waiting until QA. Synopsys offers courses on PCI DSS, OWASP Top 10, and more.
