Defending Web Applications
Course Learning Objectives
- Express software defects, including the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities and how these vulnerabilities can impact your business.
- Describe the best practices to defending against common web application exploits.
- Execute exploits against our TrueLabs ExploitMe Bank web application using the concepts learned within the course.
Understand an additional set of common web application vulnerabilities typically seen during security testing such as brute force attacks, session management concerns, encryption and more. These aspects although not directly part of the OWASP Top 10, are important to know as they can still lead to security vulnerabilities. Students will have a greater knowledge of application security threats and will understand how hackers exploit these issues and important defenses. This course is meant as a LEVEL200 course to the OWASP Top 10.
