Vanta Secure Code Training

  • Updated

Vanta offers Secure Code Training developed by our in-house security, privacy, and compliance experts to help ensure your employees learn about important secure coding principles in a way that nurtures a positive and strong culture of security and privacy.

Vanta’s Secure Code Training is housed directly within the Vanta platform—which means your employees can view and complete the videos without leaving the Vanta onboarding page. To assign the training to employees, you can create a group or leverage an existing one for the relevant employees and assign the training to that group. As with all modules within Vanta's security and privacy training library, you have access to the videos that are relevant to the frameworks you currently use with Vanta.

Employees will see the training video on their onboarding page and need to watch it in its entirety. Once they have watched and submitted it, the task will automatically be marked as complete.

Please note: The security and privacy training videos you can access are contingent on the Frameworks enabled in your Vanta instance. This means you have access only to the training videos that are relevant to the frameworks you currently use with Vanta
