Prevent OWASP Top 10 vulns with new Snyk Learn learning path
January 17, 20230 min read
The holidays are over but the gifts keep coming! Introducing Snyk Learn learning paths! Our free developer-security education offering just got better! Snyk Learn provides free, high-quality education to developers created by security experts.
We know it’s cold outside. We also know that we might be a little slow out the gate after the holidays. Emails? No more inbox 0. Slack messages? Too many to count. So while the weather and your inbox might be frightful, Snyk Learn is here to offer something delightful!
Snyk Learn learning paths are a fantastic resource for developers looking to improve their skills and knowledge. The learning paths are designed to take you on a structured journey. We offer a lot of lessons, but now we’re giving you a starting point.
One of the great things about our lessons is that you can learn at your own pace. We understand you can’t take a 40-hour course while you work and we don’t want you to burn your vacation days to learn about vulnerabilities. Our topics are broken down into bite-sized lessons so you can easily fit them into your busy schedule.
Inaugural path: The OWASP Top 10
Our first learning path is for the OWASP Top 10, a widely-recognized list of the most critical security risks facing web applications. We started with the OWASP Top 10 because it is a widely recognized list of the most critical web application security risks. It provides a framework for organizations to prioritize their efforts in addressing these risks and helps them to ensure that their applications are secure. By addressing the risks on the OWASP Top 10, organizations can reduce the likelihood of a successful cyber attack and protect sensitive data.
In this learning path, we cover every vulnerability, including broken access control, cryptographic failures, injection, insecure design, security misconfigurations, vulnerable and outdated components, identification and authentication failures, software and data integrity failures, security logging and monitoring, and server-side request forgery.
And each lesson goes in-depth on what the vulnerability is, how the attack can be successful, and, most importantly, how to fix it.
And for those who want to track their team's progress (or just love reports), we have also added reporting for admins to be able to track who completed a learning path. With our reporting tool, you can see which lessons your colleagues have viewed, and what security issues those lessons cover. You’ll also be able to see if your colleagues have started or completed the learning paths.
