OWASP/OWASP TOP 10

OWASP/OWASP TOP 10

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is an open-source appsec community. Its goal is to increase application security awareness. OWASP is the source behind the industry standard OWASP Top 10.

More and more companies from various industrial sectors are embracing this vulnerability list, which consistently encompasses today’s most critical security flaws. OWASP Top 10 2013 and OWASP Mobile Top 10 2014 are created and updated by AppSec experts from around the world, something that has helped create a unique AppSec community.

Besides offering the aforementioned cross-sector reference lists that help organizations secure their applications, OWASP is also widely acknowledged for its other contributions around the world (conferences, hackathons, lectures and more) to the field of application security. It even won the SC Magazine Editor’s Choice Award in 2014.
