WordPress Security For Developers, With A Video Intro To The OWASP Top 10
As a developer, it can be hard to get clarity on which aspects of security you should be focussing on.
In steps OWASP, the Open Web Application Security Project, which helps make web applications more secure. OWASP is most known for its “top 10” list of web application vulnerabilities, which is generally regarded as the industry-standard list.
The top 10 list is a really helpful starting point, but it can in turn be conceptually difficult to tie this directly to WordPress.
This free video series helps give you that security clarity, by talking you through a section of the current OWASP top 10 list, specifically as it applies to WordPress.
We’ll run through a segment of the vulnerabilities, do a quick demonstration where appropriate, and this will help ensure that you have the confidence, as a developer to deal with web application security – and WordPress Security.
I recorded a quick introduction to OWASP and the video series below, which gives you an idea of what you’re in for.

This video series comes from my upcoming course, WordPress Security With Confidence. You’ll be able to get the full OWASP run-down, as well as my full curriculum on WordPress Security, when the course launches in November.
It’s also worth noting: the current top 10 list is from 2013, with an updated version due out at the end of November 2017. Early drafts of this, however, show it to be similar to the existing list – so this still makes for a highly relevant starting point.
