OWASP Top 10

Andrew van der Stock

The OWASP Top 10 is a standard awareness document for developers and web application security. It represents a broad consensus about the most critical security risks to web applications. Companies should adopt this document and start the process of ensuring that their web applications minimize these risks. Using the OWASP Top 10 is perhaps the most effective first step towards changing the software development culture within your organization into one that produces more secure code.

Andrew van der Stock is one of the project leaders of the OWASP Top 10 and Application Security Verification Standard projects. He is also the Executive Director of the OWASP Foundation and previously served on the OWASP Foundation Board as director and treasurer.
