Take a deep dive into the third and fourth categories of security vulnerabilities in the OWASP Top 10—sensitive data exposure and XML external entities (XXE).
- Every day in the news, there seems to be a story about another data breach that has exposed the personal data of thousands or even millions of people. It's hard for consumers to know which companies to trust with their information. Fortunately, the Open Web Application Security Project provides a list that describes some of the most common security vulnerabilities. It's called the OWASP Top 10, and it can help you learn about how to address these in your organization's software. In this course, I'm going to talk about vulnerability categories number three and number four, sensitive data exposure and XXE attacks. Throughout this course, I'll describe how sensitive data exposure and XXE attacks work. We'll examine some real-life examples, and their impact to companies and consumers. I'll also provide you with prevention techniques so that you know how to avoid these attacks in the future. Hi, I'm Caroline Wong, I'm the chief security strategist at Cobalt.io. Come and join me in my LinkedIn Learning course on the OWASP Top 10, numbers three and four.
