OWASP Proactive Controls, Part 1: Controls 1 through 5

with expert Robert Hurlbut

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.
