Five Risks That Could Jeopardize Your Application Security Strategy

Presented by

About this talk

Applications are ubiquitous and essential to the operation and growth of business in today's digital enterprise. Applications are a treasure trove of customer information, intellectual property, and confidential data. They often contain critical IP, application functionality, data, and keys for accessing back-end corporate systems. Many enterprises believe the measures they have taken to protect their networks and endpoints and to develop more secure applications are sufficient to mitigate these risks. But many of these measures only build better fences around applications. Organizations that develop applications, meanwhile, may believe that the measures invested in application security testing and operational defense can mitigate at least the most significant exposures. But when an adversary has the ability to analyze applications closely, organizations may be surprised to discover that the security of sensitive data, their competitive advantage, and keys to accessing critical back-end systems, can be laid bare more easily than they think. Compromises to an organization’s applications can create enormous risks that company leaders may rarely consider fully. Breaches to an application can quickly lead to a loss of IP, damage an organization’s brand, violate compliance and regulatory requirements, and even lead to customer harm – consequences abundantly evident in recent high-profile breaches. Join us to learn more about the 5 critical areas where application risk management falls short.
