IT Security FAQ 7: What is OWASP Top 10?

May 4, 2016

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a worldwide not-for-profit charitable organization focused on improving the security of software. Their mission is to make software security visible, so that individuals and organizations can make informed decisions about cyber security risks. They also present at list called OWASP top 10 with the ten most common security issues online.

Comment from our expert:
”OWASP top 10 doesn’t focus on specific vulnerabilities but rather concepts in general that are usual security breaches in software. For example, the login and authentication module is often weak on many websites. The list gives some ideas on what to think about in terms of cyber security. I think it’s good for developers to read through it at least once and reflect upon it,” says Johan Edholm at Detectify.
