Join us for our first Secure Code Virtual Tournament, where we bring to you new and exciting opportunities to help you grow your cyber security program. This activity is in partnership with Secure Code Warrior, a leading provider of secure coding developer upskilling solutions.                          

Enabling development teams to code securely can provide a number of benefits including increased engagement, less downtime reworking code, a reduction on vulnerabilities detected later in the development lifecycle and much more.

What is this tournament about?
At this tournament, participants can choose from popular software languages to battle it out in a series of challenges based around the OWASP Top 10. You will be asked to identify a problem, locate insecure code and fix a vulnerability. Along the way you earn points and learn through using hints and resources such as short videos and information on the vulnerabilities. It is a fun activity to compete in and prizes will be awarded to the top 12 players. 

Who should participate?
This will be relevant to your development or security teams. Feel free to pass this on so they can register.
