Securing an application and ensuring that the correct security is set up is important. Correct security entails making sure that users are actually who they say they are (authentication), using proper authorization so that users can only access the cases and data that they are allowed to access, and identifying and addressing security vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting and phishing attacks. This module examines common mistakes that can open up vulnerabilities in the system, as well as how to address these mistakes to help avoid potential risks.
