OWASP: Securing Your Website
The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a fabulous community resource to help make Web applications more secure, across all platforms and development tools. One of its flagship projects is the OWASP Top Ten list of the most critical Web application security flaws. The list is a valuable resource for anyone building, configuring, or maintaining modern Web applications. But the organization doesn't stop there; OWASP also has a number of other projects that provide plenty of information and help for securing applications. During this session, we'll explore a couple of the Top Ten risks and see what tools OWASP has available to help you stay secure. These range from automated tools to standards for development and testing. You'll also learn more about the organization, how and why you might want to get involved in their activities, and how to get the most out of the organization.
