Great option for learning security best practices for enterprise-grade applications.
By Gavin Johnson-Lynn, Peter Mosmans, others
The path begins with several courses covering the OWASP Top 10 security risks and how to mitigate them in web applications. The second section covers goes deeper into how vulnerabilities are exploited, and how to prevent them.
Most of the courses in the path were published on or after 2022, so they are some of the most up-to-date video courses available.
As with other Pluralsight material, you get consistently high quality video training from industry practitioners. The courses are full of real-world insights and best practices.
After taking the path, you may wish to go deeper into how to test applications for vulnerabilities, with the 14-hour Web App Pen Testing learning path.
Pluralsight advertises labs as part of the learning path, but they are located in a separate part of the site. You may wish to practice the skills from this path with Test a Web Application Using Python.
Our course reviews are conducted by a team of technical professionals, course developers, and lifelong learners.
The lead of this project, Brian Green, has worked in developer education since 2009. He built the content development teams at Pluralsight and Udacity, implementing quality standards and tutorials to improve course quality and working with hundreds of authors to create courseware. Most recently, he built the product team at App Academy. As of writing, he estimates he has spent nearly a year of his life taking or reviewing online courses, on topics ranging from Web Development, Networking, Server Administration, DevOps, Cybersecurity, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence.
