OWASP also provides a list—the OWASP top ten—that highlights the most critical security risks out there. In this course, Caroline Wong explores broken access control and security misconfiguration, the fifth and sixth categories of security vulnerabilities in the OWASP Top 10. Caroline explains how these threats work and provides real-life examples of how they can impact companies and consumers.
