  • Microservices Security: It Will Get Worse Before it Gets Better
    Microservices Security: It Will Get Worse Before it Gets Better
    Eric Sheridan, Chief Scientist, WhiteHat Security Recorded: Feb 20 2019 32 mins
    For every 100KLOC, a monolithic application will have an average of 39 vulnerabilities whereas a microservice application will have an average of 180 vulnerabilities. You read that right. According to the data gathered from WhiteHat Security’s 2018 Stats Report, the transition of enterprise monolithic applications to distributed microservices architectures is actually increasing the overall average of total vulnerabilities. But why? Why is it that we seemingly continue to make the same mistakes again and again? And what does this say about the security of microservices architectures, or the developers that build them? The journey to a microservices architecture generally involves the decomposition of an already existing monolith application, wherein previous security assumptions and considerations are often questioned and sometimes invalidated.
     
    Join Eric Sheridan, Chief Scientist at WhiteHat Security, for a dive into the security trends of microservice architectures. Participants of this talk will learn…
    •Why we are seeing an increase in the number of vulnerabilities with the migration to microservices
    •The most common vulnerability classes facing applications of microservices architectures
    •Strategies that can be used to more readily find and fix vulnerabilities earlier in the development lifecycle
  • The Evolution of the Secure Software Lifecycle

    Applications are our crown jewels. They run our businesses, power grid, military defenses, personal & business banking, social networks, hospitals, and entertainment, and yet are they secure? No, they are most vulnerable, and tend to remain so!

    In this session, we’ll take a look at data which provides an analysis of tens of thousands of applications from 2017-2018 from approximately 900 companies both enterprise and SMB. The analysis includes global brands and local businesses, hundreds of thousands of application security tests and checks, along with an examination of code and behavior.

  • The Rise of Ransomware: Will the Trend Continue?
    The Rise of Ransomware: Will the Trend Continue?
    Jessica Marie, Security Evangelist, WhiteHat Security Recorded: Mar 20 2018 37 mins
    In the past year, we’ve seen a litany of ransomware attacks – Petya, WannaCry, Bad Rabbit and many others. Everything from small businesses to large scale cyber-attacks against large financial and healthcare companies have been impacted.

    The issue with Ransomware isn’t new. This type of exploit has existed for some time, leaving systems across the world inaccessible with messages that no one wants to see: ‘pay me or else’. Ransomware is an issue but one that can be avoided if companies take the right approach.

    Will this trend continue in 2018? Join Jessica Marie, Security Evangelist at WhiteHat Security to learn the ways you can protect your organization against ransomware.

    Register for this webinar to learn:
    • What to look for in ransomware attacks
    • Training recommendations for both development and security organizations
    • The importance of system backups
    • How to test your web applications for vulnerabilities that would allow outsiders to upload malicious files

    Mapping and Securing Data Flows Across Your Ecosystem
    Jeannie Warner, Security Manager, WhiteHat Security and Kurt Risley, Security Architect Recorded: Jan 16 2018 30 mins
    GDPR is coming and anyone doing business with the EU will need a Data Officer to determine their data strategy.

    With a third of all attacks coming in against web applications, mapping the data flows through those applications is required to satisfy due diligence in securing your customer data, EU citizen data, and is a good exercise in general to protect your own intellectual property.

    In this talk, Jeannie Warner, Security Manager and Kurt Risley, Security Architect at WhiteHat Security will offer best application security practices for data in the following categories:

    - Data Classification - how secure does it need to be?
    - Data Categorization - which regulations will apply?
    - Data Rules - what kinds of repeatable policies should be applied?
    - Data Mapping - identify the flow from database to applications to client apps via APIs
    - Data Securing - showing the best practices for securing the applications by use cases
