It's been a whirlwind this past year for me as I managed the developerWorks Security hub. As we close out 2017, I thought I'd post here on all the stuff you might have missed out on:

The IBM Security Ethical Hacking Team has put together a video series that demonstrates attacks from each category from OWASP’s Top 10 list. Each video includes information on how to prevent these attacks and how to use automated tools to test whether attacks are possible. These videos were initially intended for IBM internal use but have now recently been made publicly available.
You can watch all 10 videos at:
To learn more about the OWASP 10 most common application attacks and how to defend against them, register for our upcoming webinar: Avoiding Application Attacks — A Guide to Preventing the OWASP Top 10 from Happening to You.
Today's modern web applications are more than a match for most desktop PC applications and continue to push boundaries by taking advantage of limitless cloud services. But more powerful web applications means more complicated code, and the more complicated the code, the greater the risk of coding flaws — which can lead to serious security vulnerabilities within the application. Web application vulnerabilities face exploitation by relentless malicious actors, bent on profiteering from data theft, or gaining online notoriety by causing mischief. This article looks at securing web applications by adopting industry best application development practices, such as the OWASP Top 10 and using web application vulnerability scanning tools, like IBM Rational® AppScan®.
