Understand impact, Explain Vulnerabilities, And Make More Money

You can explain web application security in 1.5 hours without knowing how to code. If it’s easier for you:

  • I’ve combined the OWASP 2017 and OWASP 2013 top 10 list into a single list of 10 common web application security threats.
  • I’ve updated the course with the new threats added in 2021.

The course explains the 10 most common threats identified by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). This course will jumpstart your security career! As it touches upon the latest vulnerabilities as well as the old ones.
1) Understand the OWASP top 10,
2) Explain impact per security threat, 
3) Understand these threats can be executed by attackers / pentesters / hackers
4) Explain how these security threats can be mitigated 

You will be able to understand the above-mentioned points without having to understand code.

How is that possible?
The threats are explained conceptually, since the implementation of a threat may differ per situation. Therefore, having a general understanding of the security threats, its implications and potential solutions will provide you with the essential knowledge to mitigate the impact of these web application security threats. Hence, no security coding or security testing experience needed.
