The OWASP top 10 proactive controls

with Jim Manico


Software developers are the foundation of any application. But building secure software requires a security mindset. Unfortunately, obtaining such a mindset requires a lot of learning from a developer.

The OWASP top 10 of proactive controls aims to lower this learning curve. It covers ten crucial security controls in virtually every application. This session gives an overview of 10 common security problems, and how to address them. We will go over numerous security anti-patterns and their secure counterparts. Throughout the session, you will get a good overview of common security issues. In the end, you walk away with a set of practical guidelines to build more secure software.
