Unless you try to exploit a vulnerability yourself, no reading will give you the required know-how to fully understand the impact and avoid such weaknesses in your applications.
To become a better professional, you should have a great understanding of the most critical web application security risks. This is mandatory for IT students, job seekers, software developers, testers, and application managers.
The OWASP Top 10 “is a standard awareness document for developers and web application security. It represents a broad consensus about the most critical security risks to web applications.”
This course follows a hands-on approach: you’ll exploit at least 10 vulnerabilities in a deliberately vulnerable web application. In each session, we will review and briefly discuss a single OWASP Top 10 risk and then you’ll be guided to search and exploit that weakness in the target application. Since you’ll have access to the web application source code, you’ll be able to spot the vulnerable source code and fix it.
After completing this course, you’ll be comfortable answering security-related questions in your next job interview or bring security into your organization and into the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).
