nope; a decent WAF like  naxsi would have blocked at least the morsecode-request with its core-ruleset

/know-it-all-mode off :D

 

yes, i know, a WAF is less than a plaster for insecure webapps and cannot protect from stupidity.

Re: Large-Scale AppSec Programs
I have seen the "continuous" approach to AppSec be addressed by the DevOps model for IT, by creating a format for security teams to have input into the software development lifecycle (SDLC). At a scale of hundreds, much less thousands, of web applications, the challenge is balancing security with manageability, usability, and development velocity. Tailoring your application security practice at an app-by-app level is only tenable if there are few apps, so there are going to be some compromises in the name of manageability, usability, and dev velocity.

Re: Large-Scale AppSec Programs
All, you might find the talk I did at OWASP AppSecUSA this year interesting. It's called "AppSec at DevOps Speed and Portfolio Scale."  There are a lot more ideas about how to create a scalable, realtime, and most importantly CONTINUOUS appsec capability.  --Jeff

Re: Large-Scale AppSec Programs
@wire and @planetlevel - The Dark Reading community would also be interested in hearing about your appsec scaling experience, so please share your experience on the message boards if you can!

Re: Large-Scale AppSec Programs
@wire - I'd love to find out more about how you scaled up your appsec program continuously.  I think there are many organizations that could benefit from your experiences.  Would you be willing to discuss with me for a few minutes? If so, please reach out at [email protected] and we can set something up.  I'm gathering data for a future blog.  Thanks --Jeff

Re: Continuous application security approach
Not really on the back burner but the decision has been made to push back "go live" date until app is fixed and retested. This makes all involved with deployment pay attention to details.

Re: Continuous application security approach
thanks. I can see how important app security must be in the financial sector! How often in the last couple of years have you actually put a web app on the back burner until insecure coding is fixed.

Re: Continuous application security approach
We have been doing this for the last 10 years at least, one challenge is to make sure developers use secure coding techniques it helps the security testers to develop a best practices approach to their whole web app program. This approach must have buy in from management because when vulnerabilities are found the decision must be made to not go live until remediation is complete. The business reputation depends on it.

The Promise and Reality of Cloud Security
Cloud security has been part of the cybersecurity conversation for years but has been on the sidelines for most enterprises. The shift to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic and digital transformation projects have moved cloud infrastructure front-and-center as enterprises address the associated security risks. This report - a compilation of cutting-edge Black Hat research, in-depth Omdia analysis, and comprehensive Dark Reading reporting - explores how cloud security is rapidly evolving.
