Keynote Speech – The past is prologue; Trends in Information Security (Cyber Risk report 2015)
In this talk, I will be summarizing our findings related to trends in Information Security Landscape.
As suggested in the latest edition of HP Cyber Risk Report, well known attacks are still commonplace, with vulnerabilities that allowed access to unnecessary files and directories being dominant issues. The report showed that in addition to code based vulnerabilities that liabilities related to application deployment must also be considered to implement effective application security programs.
Even with the dearth of high profile and persistent application vulnerabilities, there is some good news. Results reveal that organizations who repeat security testing significantly lessen their security risk. It’s key in catching vulnerabilities that arise from new configurations, patches, and other application elements that don’t stay static.
