Course Description

Our newest OWASP courses contain exclusive content updates for the September 2021 version of the OWASP Top 10 list.

In the A08: Software and Data Failures course, you’ll be introduced to this new category on the OWASP Top 10 list, which was renamed from Insufficient Logging and Monitoring. Learn about how such flaws can allow adversaries to exploit critical vulnerabilities and live inside of victim systems for long periods of time. Such was the case in the massive SolarWinds breach that impacted more than 18,000 customers, including government agencies and some of the largest global corporations. Learn how to identify, exploit, and mitigate such attacks in this hands-on course.

Our OWASP Top 10 course is designed for an intermediate-level learner, someone who is a seasoned offensive security professional, SOC analyst, or Windows system administrator who wants to know how to exploit and protect against the latest vulnerabilities impacting enterprise systems.

You will gain the most benefit from this course if you have a basic understanding of: web applications, programming languages, web browsers, and web application hacking.

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a non-profit organization focused on web security. The OWASP Top 10 features the most critical web application security vulnerabilities. Our course gives you the knowledge needed to identify, exploit, and offer remediation suggestions for these vulnerabilities.

This course is available on the Cybrary platform in a series of installments. Along with an introductory module, each of the subsequent 10 modules are contained separately as installments of the course series.
