In this course, we will look at the OWASP organization and their purpose. We’ll dive into the details of how they create the “Top Ten” list: where it comes from, how they calculate the severity of each risk and how they determine where each risk ranks. We also review the possible disparity between OWASP’s ranking and your own organization’s, depending on your needs.
