About this Episode

I recently wrote a blog post on the 9 Top Automation Testing Trends for 2020. One quickly-growing trend I listed was security. Since then, I’ve been frequently asked for some useful resources to help folks get started learning about security. That’s why I was excited to learn about HackEdu, an online training platform designed to help software developers to develop code more securely. Unlike other training you may have taken, HackEdu has a unique, hands-on training approach that will keep you engaged and learning actionable security tips you can put into place right away. In this episode, we’ll be talking with Jared Ablon, Co-Founder & CEO of HackEdu, and Arthur Hicken, Chief Evangelist at Parasoft, about why security training is so essential for your teams. Check it out!
