Despite being on vulnerability “Top 10” lists for many years, application vulnerabilities such as SQL injection and Cross-Site scripting continue to be significant attack paradigms for organizational data breaches. In fact, the IBM X-Force 2013 Mid-Year Trend and Risk Report confirmed that SQL Injection (SQLi) remained the most common paradigm for attackers to breach organizational security controls. Meanwhile, Cross-Site Scripting continued to be the most common type of application vulnerability.
In this session, we review the latest trends in application and mobile security vulnerabilities, and how to combat them with improved security awareness, organizational controls and application security testing technologies. We also address how to improve application security on your organization’s mobile devices.
