Web Application Secure Coding

In order to deeply understand the most common Web Applications security issues and how to prevent them, attendees will exploit an intentionally vulnerable Web Application, review the vulnerable source code, draft required fixes to mitigate the existing vulnerabilities, and discuss existing solutions to address the most common security risks.
Training sessions are delivered by a security practitioner and OWASP project co-leader.

Target Audience

Front-end and back-end developers, DevSecOps, and Pentesters.
