You can’t truly call yourself adept at web security until you have learned and developed a mindset of thinking securely. In this video, we will explore common ways to think about web security and broader software security.
- Security through Obscurity: Keeping your system safe because attackers don’t know where it is, what it does, how it works, why it’s there, who owns it, etc.
- Security through Ignorance: Keeping your system safe by completely ignoring the fact that computer security exists, bad guys aren’t real and don’t care about your company, and vulnerabilities are a myth.
- Security by Design/Default: you should keep your apps safe by designing it to be security from the ground up.
