Reduce data breaches: Implement best practice web app security testing

March 3, 2022 @ 5:00 am 6:00 am UTC-8

Advancements over the last decade in web technologies have reshaped the software landscape and have evolved traditional desktop software into web applications. 

This transition has several advantages, but security has also become more critical than ever before. Verizon’s latest data breach incident report states that web applications have become the number one form of breach. The question becomes, how do we know if enough is being done to protect our web apps and secure the data. 

Web applications can vary significantly in size, complexity, and functionality, making testing them thoroughly and effectively challenging. On top of this, not every application requires the same depth of testing, and competing technologies can require different types of tests. 

This talk will discuss implementing a standardized process and methodology for testing web applications in a comprehensive, repeatable, and industry-recognized way. Join Roberto Salgado from Websec and Michael Argast from Kobalt.io in this wide-ranging and interactive Lunch and Learn discussion.
