Checkmarx and OWASP Launch First-ever Global Codebashing Learning Initiative

April 2024 by Marc Jacob

Checkmarx announced the Codebashing AppSec Training Initiative in partnership with the Open Worldwide Application Security Project, (OWASP). The program will provide OWASP chapters and their members around the world with access to the Codebashing AppSec solution to ease the adoption of application security (AppSec) and compliance standards and build trust between security and development teams.

OWASP is an online community that produces freely available articles, methodologies, documentation, tools, and technologies in the fields of IoT, system software and application security.

With over seven million minutes of AppSec training each year and a lesson completion rate of over 95%, Codebashing equips developers with the tools and knowledge to improve their secure coding skills. Delivered as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, Codebashing offers a compelling way for security teams to better engage developers for AppSec adoption and standards compliance. Learning key AppSec concepts within their familiar workspaces and applying those concepts from the first line of code across all applications improves productivity and lowers risk while making the AppSec process more enjoyable.

Codebashing seamlessly merges with a developer’s daily tasks, offering learning modules within their integrated development environments (IDEs) via Checkmarx One plugins. Its innovative “Learning Path” approach promotes continuous skill enhancement and is finely tuned to a developer’s specific role, be it back-end, front-end or DevOps.

Checkmarx’ renowned security researchers have curated over 85 lessons to shape the "Security Champion Program," a visually engaging path guiding developers towards mastery. On completion, participants earn an exclusive Security Champion certificate endorsed by Checkmarx.

In the new joint program with OWASP, Checkmarx has made Codebashing available to all OWASP members for a duration of one year beginning today, April 18, 2024. Once they’ve completed the program, participants will receive the Checkmarx AppSec Pro Certification for OWASP members.

The Checkmarx research team has long contributed to the software development and security communities by educating and raising awareness through its publications, presentations at leading conferences, and AppSec Village events. Checkmarx VP of Security Research Erez Yalon co-founded and is a leader of the API Security project at OWASP since 2019.

Codebashing further extends that commitment to helping the software development community learn more and do better in everything related to application security. The training solution helps developers at all levels better understand concepts and terminology in AppSec, and from theory to practice, experience and solve real-time secure code challenges. Offering courses and mini-lessons in all leading coding languages, Codebashing covers all leading security vulnerabilities in an engaging and interactive way.
