Security - IT Risk Management
Application Security risk assessment and risk management are vital tasks for IT
Corporations face increased levels of Application Security risk from hackers and
cyber crooks seeking intellectual property and customer information. A comprehensive
application security risk assessment is a modern day corporate necessity.
Application security risk management provides the optimal protection within the
constraints of budget, law, ethics, and safety. Performing an overall Application
Security risk assessment enables organizations to make wise decisions.
Web Servers - Application Security Web Servers are One of the most critical sources
of Application Security risk to organizations. Performing an application security
assessment and implementing security risk management is critical. Here are core
points that pose a major security risk to Application Security:
Default configuration - Application Security Web server default configurations
that may not be secure leave unnecessary samples, templates, administrative tools,
etc. open to attacks. Poor application security risk management leaves security
breaches for hackers to take complete control over the Web server.
Databases - Application Security Web sites and applications must be interactive
to be useful and there lies the risk... Web applications without sufficient application
security allow hackers to attack their databases. Invalid input scripts leads
to many of the worst database attacks. Comprehensive risk assessment may reveal
steps to ensure application security.
Encryption - Application Security Encryption reduces application security risks
and losses when Web servers are breached. Even though a company's Intranet server
has greater vulnerability to attacks, encryption creates a lower relative risk.
