  • 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.

    In this three-part technical guide, we consider how enterprise IAM strategy needs to adapt so that companies can cope securely with paradigm-changing technology like cloud services, software-defined everything and the internet of things. Readers of this guide to IAM security today will learn how IAM strategy and architecture have evolved and how corporations must adapt their systems if they are to employ identity and access management effectively and safely through the next decade.
