OWASP Top 10 (2017)

The OWASP Top 10 is a widely-referenced list of the most common and critical web application security weaknesses. Described as a powerful awareness resource for web application security, the Top 10 are designed to provide a comprehensive list of secure development and coding best practices.

Global Learning Systems’ OWASP Top 10 – 2017 self-paced elearning course features a fresh look at OWASP that dives into the technical aspects of each of the ten risk areas. The training provides insight into the underlying reasons for the existence of each risk and focuses on use of emerging technologies and their vulnerability to these risks. We look at cloud computing, APIs, Internet of Things (IoT), mobile application development and blockchain, to name a few.

In addition to a detailed look at each risk, the course emphasizes developing an information security mindset. Learners gain an understanding of the critical importance of safe coding practices, and their impact on both application and organizational security.

Organizations can offer the training as:

  • As a single course with a comprehensive final exam (Duration: ~4 hours)
  • Separate modules (intro plus one per risk area) with individual final tests (Duration: ~25 minutes each)
  • Role-Based
