While modern web applications are growing in complexity, the threat landscape is also constantly evolving. It can be difficult for developers to identify and remediate vulnerabilities in their code, especially if they need more expertise in security. As a result, manual application security testing has become ever more challenging and intricate.

Imagine a world where a single line of code, tucked away in a common library or framework, could bring your entire digital world to a screeching halt—welcome to the ever-evolving landscape of software supply chain security. Like any supply chain, the security of your software is only as strong as the weakest link in the system that produces and delivers working code.

Recently, Amazon accidentally exposed information on Amazon Prime Video viewing habits to the public. In addition, Thomson Reuters news and media company admitted that their servers had compromised 3TB of data by public-facing ElasticSearch databases. Well, these are the type of news we often see on the front page of cybersecurity forums. But if you dig a bit deeper, you will find that these data leaks are caused by misconfiguration, not cyber attacks.

Adopting cloud technologies is one of the most common tech strategies followed by modern organizations. This may be due to various reasons depending on the nature of the business. But there are a few standard components that span across most domains, not least the fact that cloud vendors allow developers to easily create and take down resources on the cloud with minimal effort.

AWS (Amazon Web Services) allows businesses to quickly and securely build and scale applications. Hence, there is exponential growth in AWS usage among businesses and organizations. For example, As of 2020, AWS held 76% of enterprise cloud usage, reflecting the power and importance AWS holds. This increased use of AWS tools and services opens new doors for cyber attackers. However, AWS is a very reliable cloud service provider that works hard to ensure protection over its infrastructure.

In October 2022, data center construction reached a record high, reflecting our reliance on collecting, storing, and securing data. This reliance permeates businesses across all industries and puts pressure on data centers storing and processing large amounts of data–much of which is sensitive.

No single organization can master all trades, which is why their success hinges heavily on their vendors. And if vendors are crucial for your business operations, it’s necessary to manage them as if your success depended on it–because it does. Yet, until recently (2016), only a third of companies knew how many vendors accessed their systems each week.

As the basis of pretty much every consumer system available today, Discretionary Access Control (DAC) is everywhere and used by everyone. The files on your computer, the media and applications on your smartphone, and even your social media content. They all use DAC to manage permissions. That’s in part because DAC is easy to manage and understand. But DAC also has a few glaring issues when it comes to cybersecurity.

For developers, secret and credential leakage is a problem as old as public-facing repositories. Unfortunately, in 2021 it is officially a significant risk. One that is easy to ignore until it is too late. In a rush to deliver, developers will often hard-code credentials in code or neglect to review code for exposed secrets. The results can be embarrassing, at best - but devastatingly costly in other cases.

The cloud has come a long way from Eric Schmidt's "modern" coining of the phrase in 2006. Today, companies and institutions are reliant upon a cloud infrastructure to run their day-to-day operations. This reliance and growth have also transformed the threat landscape and your cybersecurity requirements along with it. Though cloud service providers are working ceaselessly to shore up vulnerabilities and bolster defenses, the responsibility for your cloud assets does not solely lie with them. Estimates predict that by 2025, 99% of cloud failures will be caused by the customer.

Consuming secrets is a cornerstone for connectivity between applications and infrastructure. Whether it be cloud identity-based secrets such as IAM role keys from AWS, or FTP accessibility credentials - secrets such as these are often discovered by malicious users. The common culprit is usually in a public space such as public repositories on GitHub. While it's easy to think "that will never happen to us", it only takes one misplaced key pushed to the wrong repository for your entire infrastructure, application, and databases to be compromised and exposed.
