DevSec Mentor

On-Demand Training

Interactive and Language-Specific Online Security Training

 nVisium’s DevSec Mentor is intended to replace antiquated training methods such as generic CBTs (computer-based training), where students watch videos and answer multiple choice questions. nVisium has developed a reputation for offering the most in-depth and engaging instructor-led training for its clients. The online version of our training is an extension of this expertise, knowledge, and training style. Courses focus on demonstrating how application security vulnerabilities manifest in various languages and frameworks using real-world code examples. In order to pass each course, students must find and fix all of the vulnerabilities in the code, demonstrating their engagement and critical thinking skills.

nVisium’s DevSec Mentor was developed as an online alternative to our instructor-led training and uses an interactive grading engine. The content is engaging, language-specific, and aligns with the OWASP Top 10. Our courses meet PCI-DSS requirements.
