The Open Web Application Security Project periodically puts out a report showing the top ten risks for web applications. In this talk, we will review the latest version of the OWASP Top 10 Application Security Risks, released in 2017. We will briefly cover each of the ten topics and explain how the topic applies to the Microsoft .NET world of MVC and Web Forms, focusing on things a developer can do to write more secure code. This talk will not go into great detail on any individual topic, but we will have a chance to see a couple of these risks and mitigation techniques in action.
