To protect users and data, application security has become an increasingly critical consideration for businesses globally. Developers must take the time to continuously monitor, fix, and mitigate security vulnerabilities in their apps. Challenges are created when security is glossed over, added on after the fact, or flat out missing.

A quick Google search tells us these are the top five critical security risks in most apps:

1. SQL injection
2. Sensitive data exposure
3. Broken authentication and session management
4. Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)
5. Broken access control
