Application vulnerabilities, present to the organisation, one of the highest risks and challenges facing any CIO/CSO today. Applications are the workhorses for allowing sensitive data and people to communicate within the organisation and carry out their function. Without these systems, most organisations would collapse. Over the years, Appsecure has identified that one of the biggest challenges facing any organisation with this problem is education.

Typically, business teams, developers and infrastructure teams are focused on rapid low cost deployment. Although, this is critically important, establishing that you also have secure systems and applications, ensures that the organisation is not exposed to unwanted and high risk. Through education across the organisation, the exposure of deploying insecure applications can be dramatically decreased.

Our Awareness 101 program, is not only about assisting developers, but looking at the organisation in general. Working alongside the relevant teams to help raise the awareness of security vulnerabilities in applications and the risk they present to the business. This is typically achieved through a internal marketing and education program alongside security workshops with relevant team leaders.

Typically our awareness 101 programs assist in the organisation in educating their business and technical teams in the areas of

  • Internet and External threats to the organisation? Do they really exist?
  • Data Protection, what is sensitive data, and what do i need to protect.
  • How does my role affect whether our applications are secure.
  • What can we do to minimise the threat to the organisation.
  • What happens if i identify something that looks suspicous? How to handle an incident?

We've found that by implementing the above messages in a managed awareness program across the organisation. You can greatly decrease the threat to the organisation, increase the secure coding into production code and ensure security related events are handled correctly. General Awareness programs help to change the culture of the organisation. This is the single most important objective, if the organisation understands the issues then it is always considering the risk associated with security of the data and systems, thus it's never forgotten.
