Advances in Application Security: Run-time Application Self Protection

In this post Target/Home Depot breach era, Application Security programs still seem to struggle at organizations of all sizes. The reasons for this 'mediocre' success range from mis-alignment between information security and application development groups to simply the lack of resources available for identification and remediation of legacy application security vulnerabilities.

Organizations continue to suffer repeat attacks as well as successful system compromises in light of pervasive poor application security issues. Join Information Security practitioners from Time Warner and Visa to discuss the evolution of enterprise application security at their own organizations.

The audience will learn:

  • The latest state of the art in application security: Runtime Application Self-Protection;
  • The importance of a balanced approach to enterprise security, requiring appropriate investment in application security;
  • How enterprises can build business cases for investment in application security.

Background

Enterprise information security encompasses a broad set of disciplines and technologies, but at the highest level they can be broken down into three main categories: network security, endpoint security and application security. Network security and endpoint security have advanced greatly in the last few years and enterprises have invested appropriately. Hackers, meanwhile, have switched their focus to applications since they remain a softer target to attack. This is why Gartner estimates that more than 70% of all hacks happened at the application layer in 2013 - becoming the main attack surface for hackers.

Allocation of security budgets has not yet matched this transition and enterprises are now recognizing the need to make an appropriate investment in application security. However, building a modern application security program is not trivial and there are many challenges including alignment between security and application development teams, finding resources with appropriate security expertise, the costs associated with remediation of legacy applications and staying ahead of zero day attacks.

This webinar will draw on the experience and expertise of senior security leaders at Time Warner and Visa to discuss the evolution of enterprise application security and in particular:
