Identify & Address Risks, Protect Information &
Ensure Online Integrity

Online security threats aren’t going away, if anything they are getting more complex and putting organizations and individuals at greater risk. Whether you are a full-time coding professional, senior executive or board volunteer, increasing your understanding of the top risks is essential.

Understanding the OWASP®Top 10 Security Threats (SKF100), a new FREE course from Linux Foundation Training and Certification, is designed to help business leaders and IT professionals understand the threats and steps required to mitigate the risks associated with The Open Worldwide Application Security Project’s Top 10 Security Threats.

The course prepares you to build a strong foundation for roles like analysts, testers, and consultants. Participants will gain knowledge and skills needed to identify and mitigate web application vulnerabilities including:

  • risk assessment
  • advanced exploitation techniques, and
  • secure coding practices.

“The stark reality is that as risks increase, so does the demand for cyber security professionals,” said Clyde Seepersad, SVP, General Manager, Training & Certification, Linux Foundation. “And whether you are building code or leading an organization, increasing your knowledge and skills about online risks is a must-have skill set in today’s IT intensive environment.”

With this course Linux Foundation Training & Certification is excited to include our new lab environment sandbox. This new lab feature is a Linux Foundation Training & Certification resource and is included at no cost. The lab environment sandbox allows participants to complete a range of activities including identifying, analyzing and mitigating:

  • Broken access control vulnerabilities

  • Injection weaknesses
  • Potential threats 
  • Misconfiguration weaknesses
  • Outdated and vulnerable component usage
  • Weak identification and authentication mechanisms
