The importance of web security

Businesses increasingly rely on being online, yet web security is often overlooked. This is evidenced by the fact that the top web attack methods, such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting, continue to be effective.

 These well-known vulnerabilities need to be addressed and web security needs to move beyond whitelisting, blacklisting and URL filtering. It needs to be dynamic in response to a dynamic threat. It also needs to take humans into account by responding to users’ needs and providing a working environment that is inherently secure and insulated from common web threats.

 Organisations need to be aware of their exposure to web threats and follow best practice to limit that exposure and mitigate the damage from web-based attacks. This is best achieved by monitoring all web traffic, securing web applications, ensuring data is not exposed to the internet unnecessarily, using good access controls, and implementing multi-factor authentication. The risk is often high, but it can and must be managed.
