Earn Security Belts, Level Up Your Knowledge, and Become a Cybersecurity Pro with Security Journey

Degree programs and security certifications give you credentials, but most fail to give you the real-world knowledge and skills that will make you valuable to employers.

Security Journey certificate levels (belts)

That’s why we built a Security Belt program that lets you earn belts—from White to Yellow, Green, Brown, and the coveted Black—as you learn real-world security skills and show that you can apply them in on-the-job situations.

Security Belt programs are sweeping across the corporate world as more and more organizations realize the importance of security training that will actually show employees how to keep their products secure.

Now you can get that same level of training at home.

How Security Journey Works

Each Security Belt level guides you through a series of quick, engaging videos and assessments that give you a foundation of security awareness and skills.

How to Fasttrack Your Cybersecurity Career

Chris Romeo
A Note from Security Journey Founder Chris Romeo

Figuring out how to get started in cybersecurity gets more complicated every year. As the number of vulnerabilities and threats rise, so does the number of certifications and training seminars available to anyone looking to get into the field. I know because I’ve tried them all.

Before Security Journey, I was the Chief Security Advocate at a Fortune 100 company with over 60,000 employees. My task? Finding a training program that would give our employees the skills they need to understand security in a rapidly changing landscape.

But there was one big problem: every program I demoed either:

a) Put me to sleep in minutes with boring videos of Powerpoint slides and people reading off teleprompters, or

b) Went a mile wide and an inch deep—they left you with no practical skills or knowledge that actually improved your security ability

If I couldn’t stand watching hours of people retreading the same dated material, there was no way 20,000+ developers in our company were going to get through it. They’d revolt! I’d be lucky to be alive if I wasted that many people’s time.

So I assembled a team and built what became the world’s largest security program inside our organization:

● We replaced scripts and teleprompters with passionate experts having engaging conversations about security that actually related to the work developers and testers were doing every day.

● We made videos and assessments they could progress through 15 minutes at a time, without disrupting their workflow.

● And we created a unique Security Belt structure that made advancing your security skills fun and rewarding.

The results? Over 20,000 employees went through the program—and it wasn’t even mandatory.

I wanted to rebuild that same level of high-quality, engaging security training from the ground up and make it available not only to organizations, but to anyone interested in building a career in cybersecurity.

And that’s exactly what we’ve built with Security Journey.

Every video, assessment, and lesson was created to cover the foundational security concepts companies will expect you to understand.

Hiring managers are facing a huge void of talent and expertise in application security, and certifications like CISSP, CCNA, and Security+ don’t go deep enough to give you the practical knowledge and skills needed to build secure software.

If you’re looking to accelerate your start in cybersecurity, I’d love for you to try Security Journey free and see how enjoyable it can be to level up your skills.
