SafeStack Academy partners with leading tech companies

We believe in cyber security for everyone, and a big part of reaching more organisations is working together with our partners. Over the last few months, we’ve formed partnerships with a bunch of great organisations across New Zealand and Australia, and we’re delighted to introduce them to you.

Even with the most up to date security protections in place, your best line of defence is your team — and we want to help as many teams as possible grow their cyber security superpowers. We’re living in a critical time for security education, which we see illustrated by increased incidents worldwide. This need for education is particularly true for software development teams as their industry grows exponentially.

With that in mind, SafeStack Academy is on a mission to build security skills and culture across entire development teams. We do this by offering affordable, high quality, and people-focused online education through our Secure Development programme. Instead of focusing on specific programming languages or technologies, we teach secure design and architectural practices that integrate earlier into the software development lifecycle, securing a broader range of teams and technical environments.

We also offer short, engaging, and action-oriented courses through our Security and Privacy Awareness programmes, so everyone on your team can grow their skills and knowledge on these topics, whatever their background or experience level.

As cyber security continues to be an essential topic, we’re looking forward to bringing our online training programmes to teams around the world. We’re seeking new partners in Europe and the US, so please get in touch to learn more about becoming a partner.

Without further ado, we’d love you to meet these neat businesses we're working with.
