Web Application Hacking and Security

Why Mastery of Web Application is Important

Most of the work we do on a day-to-day basis uses cloud-based apps that are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. There are currently 43,986 exploits (and growing) in the Google Hacking Database and the total number of Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) is at a record high with over 18,000 published in 2020 alone!

Now, with so many published vulnerabilities, it is important to learn to defend and secure your web applications. Traditional protections like firewalls alone do not secure web applications. Defenders need a deep understanding of the most critical security risks to web applications such as the OWASP Top 10. And what better way to learn to gain familiarity and defend than to attack!
