For each of the OWASP Top 10 risks, we are going to look at the key information security concepts, so that you better understand the definition of each risk. Then we are going to – together – define each risk – and we are going to do this in layman’s terms, so that you really understand each risk.
We are also going to look at the main challenges that developers and others face that cause each risk. Finally, we are going to give examples of good and bad code using pseudocode and we are going to conclude with some of the best protection practices to help you and your team avoid each risk from materializing.
