SCMSP, a Business Technology and Cloud Solutions consulting firm announces today new protocols for assessing and reducing business information security vulnerabilities. New research shows 90% of all information security vulnerabilities are found in applications and web security. Yet 80% of all security spending is on network vulnerabilities. Businesses of all sizes and markets have taken to the internet with websites, social media marketing, blogs and e-commerce. The growth of business online has exploded over the last few years, hence increasing the imminent threats to organizations’ environments, proprietary and intellectual property. This is especially true for healthcare providers, financial institutions and energy companies that have compliance regulations to adhere to. The move to the web and the use of web applications, like e-commerce, has created a huge target for attackers to exploit every minute of every day. Nearly every website is vulnerable due to a lack of security as shown from independent research from the Ponemon Institute. Additionally, our own experience shows most companies never test their web security until a breach occurs and disaster strikes.
According to Derek Spotswood, Managing Director of SCMSP; “every C Level Executive needs to understand this critical information that they may not be aware of and how vulnerable their organization may be to attack. That is; security is often inadequately addressed during the software development process and if your organization is not routinely testing for application security your team may not know how to identify, measure or understand your application security risks. Every day we find significant disconnects between Executives and their staff regarding application security and how to adequately protect their company and their customers from security breaches. It is essential that we are involved at the level of assessing the physical, data, hardware, application, and end user community aspects of security in an organization in order to put the necessary security policies and procedures into standard operating process. We want to secure and stabilize an environment so that we can proactively monitor and maintain an organization from all forms of threats, to eventually achieve a proactive and preventative culture from being reactionary. That’s why we are offering web application security and code reviews for all current and new customers. We have gotten an overwhelmingly positive response to this from our base.”
