Why A Map?

Every journey needs a map. Through hands-on and video lessons, challenges and competitions, Security Journey helps you progress through learning paths to gain higher level security knowledge. Here is an example of our Progressive Learning Levels:

  • Foundational: This training content will be about what vulnerabilities are

  • Intermediate: This training content can cover how to spot vulnerabilities within the code

  • Advanced: This training content can teach how to remediate vulnerabilities through a hands-on activity

  • Professional: This is where you apply your knowledge inside the organization, for example by evaluating security processes; in the professional level, you can take action with the knowledge you've =gained to have a meaningful impact on the organization

  • Expert: You've become a Security Champion and can be an instructor delivering security education sessions, and working as a liaison between security and development

Each island represents a different part of your journey - and as each path is completed, it opens a new level. Once you complete the Advanced level, you have a chance to earn your Champion Passport.

The map offers a full navigation experience that guides you through each path, mission, quest or tournament. The main pieces of the map are -- Islands, Legend, Spears, and Key.

The Islands

  • Each Island represents a different path in your journey.

  • The bottom-most island is the Foundational level and will be where you start.

  • The island on the left is what you will traverse for Intermediate level.

  • Advanced is the island on the top right.

Map Legends

  • Green Circle: The module video or transcript has been viewed and the assessment was passed with an 80% or higher. For our Break/Fix content, the coding exercise was completed successfully.

  • Brown Triangle: Module is in progress

  • Blue Diamond: Not yet started

  • White Hexagon: Optional

  • Highlighted Icon: Points you to your next module in your journey
