Case study: Securing the Technology Change Agenda.


March 21, 2014

Understanding and managing the security risk of technology change initiatives.

ABSTRACT:
Businesses are increasingly seeking to leverage new technologies such as mobile and cloud to enable strategic initiatives, realise business efficiencies, support a flexible, productive workforce and facilitate innovation.

Although these initiatives provide many business benefits, the rapidly evolving technology landscape can also introduce significant security risks that threaten the confidentiality, integrity or availability of sensitive corporate information. In the modern, connected age such compromises can have a significant negative impact to corporate reputation and business performance.

Understanding, identifying and mitigating the security risks inherent in the use of such technology is necessary to allow businesses to realise the benefits of investment in new technology initiatives while maintaining their desired security posture.

Case study: Security Pitfalls of a Shared Portal.

Lessons learned from a custom portal development project.

ABSTRACT:
This paper sets out to examine the lessons learned from a client who commissioned a custom web portal to be developed. During our security assessment, we found a number of significant security vulnerabilities which lead to data theft, account take over and system compromise.

The security pitfalls which lead to the compromises will be outlined along with the recommendations and strategies for avoiding these issues within your own projects.
