How important is the vulnerability assessment of your web property

  1. 1. How important is the vulnerability assessment of your web property? Web is the critical part of any business today and more so when you do transactions using the web as a medium. There are three critical factors that become important such as availability, confidentiality and integrity of the data. It becomes mandatory for every organization to take a proactive web security approach to safeguard themselves from any attacks that jeopardize their business and erode brand value. When it comes to web security, there are broadly three types and there are different ways by which they can be addressed. 1. Network level security – at the data center level, this can be hardened through usage of industry-grade firewalls and authentication services. This is in addition to the hardening of the operating system used, kind of frameworks used for the web etc. 2. Application level security – this is very critical in terms of vulnerabilities that it can throw. Some of the good practices followed would be test every release in the staging server before it get to production, use scout and scanning services for monitoring, validate security configuration after applying patches, constant monitoring and updation of applied patches and security releases, review custom built libraries 3. Live monitoring – have defined governance mechanisms and response strategy for any attacks, and monitor performance on a continuous basis. Governance mechanism may include faster prioritization of vulnerabilities and remediation activities This would take care of most possible external attacks and ensure availability of web property without compromising the privacy and confidentiality of transactional data, while ensuring faster turnaround time in case of breaches.Visit IVESIA’S WEBSITE Follow us at LINKEDIN and TWITTER
