Listen to Hugh's application security advice in our semi-monthly Threat Monitor podcast. 
Application vulnerabilities present a very real, significant threat to business, and even if a network is secure, your applications may not be. So why have enterprises been slow to invest in application security, and what particular attacks should security professionals be focusing in on? And what tools and technologies should be used to fight common threats like buffer overflows and cross-site scripting?

Hugh Thompson, founder of People Security, looks beyond the OWASP Top Ten and reveals the essentials of any enterprise application security strategy. Thompson talks about the role of Web application firewalls, security assessments and the development team itself in the creation of secure software.
