Topic: Building a shield of security - Vulnerability Management by the numbers and dumb robots
This presentation discusses how builders, breakers and defenders should look at vulnerability management when attempting to keep hackers at bay?? We shall discuss the most common vulnerabilities which are not detected by security tools nor automation but nevertheless are common and can be used to commit real fraud resulting in financial loss. We will look at some real world examples from the trenches, discuss business logic and authorisation testing, how we approach these and why automation does not work to detect such critical issues. We will see that Web Application Firewalls are ineffective against such attacks and why the only practical solution is to apply a layered approach across the SDLC and by focusing on the application as a logical state machine.
