Enroll in these four OWASP courses: Avoiding Hacker Tricks, Forgery and Phishing, Proactive Controls, and Threats Fundamentals. Also learn a basic introduction to web design where you can implement these OWASP security measures.

Every day, it seems, a new security breach is announced on the news. Earlier in September, British Airways announced they’d suffered a breach on their website and mobile app, compromising roughly 380,000 credit cards. Last week, SHEIN, a fashion retailer, announced a hack of email addresses and encrypted passwords of 6.42 million of their users.


No matter the industry, today’s businesses face great security risks as more information is stored online than ever before.


Stay ahead of emerging risks by learning Open Web Application Security Project’s (OWASP) latest tips on how to improve the security of your software. In four new courses released this month, you can explore hacker’s tricks and how to avoid them, forgery and phishing prevention, proactive controls, and threats fundamentals. In addition, there are two new courses on web design fundamentals where you can incorporate your newly learned security tricks.
