Many SAFECode members have found software Security Champions programs to be of significant value to their software security effort. The advice shared all throughout January’s Month of Champions came from the real-world experiences and ongoing collaboration of our authors and contributors.

On behalf of SAFECode, I’d like to thank these Champion Contributors once more for taking the time to share their experiences and advice on creating and sustaining a Security Champions program. We hope that the information they shared has been helpful to our readers.

To make it easier to reference and share this information, we’ve pulled together all of the blog content into a short guidebook now available for free download here.

For those seeking more information on Security Champions programs in a DevOps environment, we also invite you to join a webinar later this month from SAFECode and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) on Security Champions in DevOps. Learn more here.
