About this Specialization

In this learning path, we will look at the OWASP organization and what its purpose is. We will then examine Broken Access Control, Cryptographic Failures, Injection Attacks, Insecure Design and Security Misconfiguration. We’ll use demos, graphics and real-life examples to help you understand the details of each of these risks. We will then examine Vulnerable and Outdated Components, Identification and Authentication Failures, Software and Data Integrity Failures, Security Logging and Monitoring Failures, and Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF). After we complete our look at the current OWASP Top Ten, we will examine three very relevant security risks that were merged into larger topics in the OWASP Top Ten 2021 list. It’s still important to know the details of how these risks work. We will explore XML External Entities (XXE), Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and Insecure Deserialization.

How the Specialization Works

Take Courses

A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.

Hands-on Project

Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.

Earn a Certificate

When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
