We asked 25 security professionals to provide us with some examples of use cases where they are helping clients secure applications and data. Here’s what they told us:
- 1) We ensure apps that manage valuable data (personally identifiable information, healthcare data) are secure. We see data dumps of SQL databases from insecure apps on the dark web all the time. We help customers identify their high-risk applications, identify the kind of data at stake, and evaluate the risk to the company. We prioritize and put the appropriate testing in place to protect customer data managed by the web app. 2) Hackers are using apps to break into internal networks of corporations. Any app poses a risk if someone can access your mainframe through it. We help clients identify the risk of their apps.
