This path mainly covers policies and procedures that are important to know about as a fullstack software developer.
The course frequently links out to supplemental resources like the OWASP Cheat Sheet and OWASP Developers Guide, which will help you go beyond the theoretical and into the practical. Be sure to follow these links to learn more about these topics.
