About the Topic

 

"Web Application Security – Assurance and Risks"

 

The IS Audit and Assurance function has evolved greatly since the days of EDP auditing.  The common thread however, that has remained consistent throughout this evolution is the focus on risk mitigation. Web Applications present their own set of challenges to the assurance function. The greatest challenge pertaining to web applications, for assurance and security professionals is the assessment of its security posture.

 

The session would explore the rationale and significance of ‘security’ for the assurance professionals. ISACA standards and guidelines relevant to this domain would be discussed. The common risks and exploits associated with web applications including the OWASP Top 10 would be included as a part of the session.

 

The objective of the session is to

  • present the rationale for assessing security when performing assurance reviews
  • discuss the common risks surrounding web applications
  • discuss best practices for mitigating these risks
