Who is OWASP and How Do They Improve Software Security?

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a global non-profit organization of security enthusiasts and experts dedicated to improving web applications and software security.

Founded on the principle of making their work freely available through an open-source and open community platform, OWASP aims to build an educational source for building more secure solutions through freely accessible videos, courses, whitepapers, and forums.

One of the most beneficial contributions of the OWASP is their Top 10 report. The OWASP Top 10 report is a freely accessible report that outlines what the OWASP determines to be the ten most critical security threats present to organizations today. This ever-evolving list is updated every 2 to 3 years to reflect the world's current state and what types of threats or attack vectors pose the most risk.

By leveraging this global security community's resources, organizations can better assess their own internal vulnerabilities and build more effective security solutions resilient to today's modern challenges.
