Insider Edition: Secure web apps
Secure web apps are essential to business. Everyday interactions rely on them, which means security flaws in apps have serious ramifications for enterprises. Most studies conclude that more than half of web applications have critical security vulnerabilities -- but they're not fancy threats; they're things like cross-site scripting and SQL injection.
In this Insider Edition of Information Security magazine, we explore how to secure web apps, beginning with Mike Chapple's report on security experts' practical advice on web app security in general and recommendations from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) in particular. Alan Earls then considers the impact of mergers and acquisitions on web application security. Finally, Marcus Ranum talks to Veracode's chief strategy officer about many things, including ways infosec pros and CISOs can prevent app security breaches.
Readers will come away with a deeper understanding of the challenge of web app security and with practical advice on how to achieve it.
