Why A Map?

Security is a journey that every developer is always traversing. Changing culture and building actionable security knowledge starts with a foundational understanding of vocabulary and concepts (White Belt) for everyone involved in the development ecosystem. Then moves to intermediate knowledge (Yellow Belt) of security concepts requiring more technical knowledge.

After establishing this foundation, the technical development team then dives deeper into the same concepts as they relate to specific coding languages and technologies (Green Belts). Real-world applications are the final two steps of becoming a security champion (Brown & Black Belt) through activities and improved practices, like Threat Modeling.

The map is where all of this happens. Each island represents a different belt - and the Personal Security Dojo opens once Green Belt is earned - this is where you become a champion.

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

The Islands

  • Each Island represents a different belt in your journey.

  • The bottom-most island is White Belt and is indicated by Start Here.

  • To the left is the island for Yellow Belt

  • Green Belt is on the top right island, with the Personal Security Dojo indicated for Brown and Black Belt(once unlocked).
