Cyber attacks are a real and growing threat to businesses and an increasing number of attacks take place at application layer. The best defence is to develop applications where security controls are incorporated as part of the software development cycle and used by developers while writing their code. OWASP Top 10 Proactive Controls considers security as part of development. This talk will present the proactive security controls that can be incorporated in development cycle and used while writing the software. By the end of this presentation you will have a better understanding of the recommended security controls that you can incorporate into your software projects. For each control, you will learn which OWASP Top 10 Risks can prevent.
The OWASP Top 10 2017 is a powerful awareness document for web application security and a new version has been recently released. The list, which represents the most common vulnerabilities found in web applications, suits very well testers. But how can developers write more secure applications to prevent these ? What are the security techniques they can use while writing their software to prevent these? These are hard questions, as evidenced by the increased cyber breaches. In this talk, we will explore together the new OWASP Top10 2017. Staring from real world examples and breaches, we identify the security controls that developers can use in SDLC to help them to prevent the most common vulnerabilities.
