Abstract

One of the weakest links in the information security chain is the application. With the explosion of the web interface within applications, cybercriminals have found more fertile ground. Implementing an application security/risk management strategy is crucial for any organization to proactively protect its critical assets and infrastructure. Risks must be identified and addressed at each phase of the software development life cycle. Executive support, budget, vulnerability assessments, and tool and vendor selection criteria are some of the topics representatives from three institutions will discuss as they share the successes, challenges, and common pitfalls of recent application security/risk management program implementations.
