****ALWAYS UPDATED WITH NEW LESSONS****+ Get instant access to course slides!+ Get instant access to additional technical resources to scan your websiteUnderstand impact, Explain Vulnerabilities, And Make More MoneyWithin 1,5 hour you will be able to explain web application security without having to code. For your convenience: I’ve combined the OWASP 2017 and OWASP 2013 top 10 list into a single list of 10 common web application security threats.I’ve updated the course with the new threats added in 2021.I will teach you the 10 most common threats identified by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). This course will jumpstart your security career!  Overview1) Understand the OWASP top 10, 2) Explain impact per security threat, 3) Understand these threats can be executed by attackers / pentesters / hackers 4) Explain how these security threats can be mitigated You will be able to understand the above-mentioned points without having to understand code. How is that possible?The threats are explained conceptually, since the implementation of a threat may differ per situation. Therefore, having a general understanding of the security threats, its implications and potential solutions will provide you with the essential knowledge to mitigate the impact of these web application security threats. Hence, no security coding or security testing experience needed.Content (the course is updated continuously thus this list will grow!)InjectionBroken Authentication and Session ManagementCross-Site ScriptingBroken Access ControlSecurity MisconfigurationSensitive Data ExposureInsufficient Attack ProtectionCross-Site Request ForgeryUsing Components with Known VulnerabilitiesUnderprotected APIsXML External Entities (XXE)Insecure DeserialisationInsufficient logging and monitoringCryptographic FailuresInsecure Design Software and Data Integrity Failures  Server-Side Request Forgery My Promise to YouI’m a full time security consultant and online teacher.
