Webinar overview:

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing unbiased, practical information about application security. Accordingly, The OWASP Top Ten is an expert consensus of the most critical web application security threats. If properly understood, it is an invaluable framework to prioritize efforts and address flaws that expose organizations to attack. Left unchecked and unchanged, they allow attackers to take over an organization’s software, steal data, and prevent software from working.

This webinar will present the OWASP Top Ten in an abridged format, interpreting the threats for attendees and providing actionable offensive and defensive best practices. It is ideal for all IT/development stakeholders who want to take a risk-based approach to web application security.

Key takeaways:

Outline the telltale markers of the OWASP Top Ten and techniques to hunt them down, including:

  • Vulnerability anatomy – how they present themselves
  • Analysis of vulnerability root cause and protection schemas
  • Test procedures to validate susceptibility (or not) for each threat
