Testing for the Five Most Dangerous Security Vulnerabilities
Today, secure applications are vital for every organization. Security attacks seem to come from every corner of the globe. If your applications are breached, your organization could lose millions. Currently, the biggest holes in IT security are found in applications rather than system or network software. Perimeter and network defenses are not enough to protect your organization from attacks.
Unfortunately, most development and testing teams do not have the expertise or the tools they need to properly secure their applications. Joe Basirico, an experienced software security expert, will highlight the top five security vulnerabilities that testers face today and offer practical how-to tips for testing their applications with security in mind.
- Address security issues before the product ships
- Understand the trade-offs among functionality, usability, and security
- Select system designs that are "security safe"
