Course Description

Hi,thanks for signing in my course.

So Do you code with PHP language or own a website?If so this course is perfect for you!

Keep Your PHP Website Safe and Secure With Simple, Practical Techniques that Anyone Can Implement.

The Open Web Application Security Project has released a useful document that lists what they consider are the Top 10 security vulnerabilities in MOST PHP web applications.

PHP language grows very quickly rather than engineered. It very easy and universal to write insecure PHP applications. If you want to safely use the PHP language and writing secure PHP applications , you need to know all of its pitfalls.

And if you're site is compromised, it could be contributing to this problem!

Having your site compromised could result in:

  • Loss of income

That's not even considering the cost and effort required to clean up a security problem.
