Skills in demand: Web application security

Web application security 

With so many of us visiting the web for social-networking, shopping, banking, paying bills and general surfing, it's imperative that companies ensure their web facing applications are secure and free from vulnerabilities.

What it takes

Mid- to senior-level experience enforcing web application security in all phases of SDLC with the ability to identify, interpret and remediate vulnerabilities found within web applications. Knowledge of the OWASP Top 10, web vulnerability scanning tools and previous web application development skills are a plus.


Full-time salaries generally range from $90,000 to $135,000 (higher in certain regions and for contractors).
