Web Application Security

Many of us deploy or develop applications that are connected to the Internet.  How do we know these are secure?  Is it possible to design secure applications to reduce the risk of successful attacks? Insecure web applications are the most commonly attacked systems on the Internet. 

This course introduces the top vulnerabilities in applications and discusses common, but often overlooked, fixes for each. Developing, configuring, and deploying secure applications minimizes attack surface and risk. Our primary objective is to increase awareness of common application vulnerabilities, discuss tactics attackers use to exploit these vulnerabilities and address mitigation options.
