OWASP stands for Open Web Application Security Project, and it's a nonprofit foundation focused on improving digital security.

Each year, they release the list of the top 10 most common and damaging security issues found across the web.

Chief Technology Officers (CTO), security researchers, web-mobile-desktop developers, and anyone who create software that connects online should know about the top most common issues.

Understanding those common security problems can lead to the creation of better code and software. Consequently, it can lead to decreased security breaches or data loss; those issues are happening more and more often as most businesses rely on digitalizing their processes and hosting their data.
