Application Security for Cloud-Based Companies

Presented by

Jim Manico, VP Security Architecture, WhiteHat Security

About this talk

It used to be that software vendors sold native applications that would run on a single environment, sheltered by firewalls and anti-virus software, leaving data on a local drive. Today’s SaaS applications have made every application a Web application and thus made their customers’ once internal applications external ones. Ultimately, the increased risk of cyber attack has made security objectives a business target just like sales goals. This interactive session will discuss real-world examples of companies aligning security and business goals while transitioning to the cloud and how they tackled long-standing issues to develop a continuous security culture. Attendees will learn how Web applications have become the primary attack target of a cloud-based organization with a thorough look at statistics on recent hackings. They will also learn how the movement towards cloud computing has reduced, even erased, effectiveness of the network security layer from a technical standpoint and what risks insecure applications on the cloud pose to themselves and other companies. Additionally, listeners will gain an understanding of how fix and remediate these key risks though secure coding practices.
