Course description

In this course, you will learn about the OWASP Top 10 Proactive Controls document and the many guidelines it provides to help developers write better and more secure code. In particular, I provide an overview of the Proactive Controls and then I cover the first five security controls. These security controls include testing for security early and often, learning about parameterizing SQL queries, encoding data input that may be parsed as executable code, validating data input, and finally you will learn about identity and authentication techniques to make sure you know who is using your web applications. Join me in this course as we explore the OWASP Top 10 Proactive Controls.

Prerequisites

The assumption is the student is familiar with web and/or mobile development plus basic application security principles. Also, it is highly recommended the student be familiar with the OWASP Top 10 project. There are several other courses provided by LearnNowOnline which can prepare the student with knowledge of the OWASP Top 10 before taking this course. This course is about the OWASP Top 10 Proactive Controls, which is a supplement to the OWASP Top 10 for developers
