How can OWASP MASTG and OWASP MASVS Redefine Your Mobile App Security?

The OWASP Mobile Application Security Testing Guide (MASTG) and the OWASP Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS) are two vital resources that have been instrumental in reshaping the landscape of mobile app security. Developed by cybersecurity experts, the MASTG is an elaborate manual that describes the technicalities for meeting the security requirements listed in the OWASP Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS).

Mobile Application Security - From Vulnerabilities to Vigilance

Your mobile apps are your business's face to the world. As an app creator or business owner, credibility is everything, and security is the cornerstone upon which it stands. Now, with the digital ecosystem being highly susceptible to breaches, even a single slip in security can shatter the trust your users have in your brand, tarnishing the hard-earned credibility of your business. This is why mobile app security is key to your business’s growth.

A Comprehensive Guide on OWASP Top 10 2023 Compliance

In 2022, Twitter suffered a massive data breach, which exposed the personal data of 5.4 million caused by broken authentication. Threat actors exploited Twitter's API vulnerability to gain unauthorized access to users' sensitive personal data. The incident resulted in reputational loss and hefty fines from the regulatory body for failing to protect users' data. This shows that no organization, regardless of size, is immune to data breaches.

Driving ROI for Mobile Application Penetration Testing

In 2017, Equifax, a major American credit bureau, became a cautionary tale in the importance of robust cybersecurity practices. It overlooked critical vulnerabilities in its systems, failing to address a known security flaw in its Apache Struts web app framework. This oversight resulted in the data leak of 143 million customers, costing Equifax $1.38 billion in making breach compensations and upgrading its IT systems.

EBOM vs. MBOM vs. SBOM: Key Differences & Best Practices

Managing all aspects of the product development cycle is a crucial element of a profitable company. Most businesses understand that an efficient product lifecycle depends on the proper positioning and management of the Bills of Materials (BOM), be it for product designing and manufacturing or software development. Getting all the BOMs right is the essential first step toward achieving operational efficiency.

Penetration Testing Software vs. Human Expertise: Finding the Right Balance

Penetration testing remains a crucial element in cybersecurity, providing organizations with the proactive means to identify and address security vulnerabilities long before they become opportunities for malicious actors. More than 75% of businesses perform pen-testing either to maintain their security posture or due to compliance reasons.

Navigating the Supply Chain Security Maze with SBOMs

Security Magazine reported more than 2,200 daily cyberattacks, which translates to roughly one cyberattack occurring every 39 seconds! As these stakes in cybersecurity continue to reach higher and higher levels, it becomes even more crucial to emphasize securing the very bedrock of elements upon which our digital existence is built.

Bill of Materials (BOM) Meaning, Purpose, and Types

Imagine constructing a building without a blueprint or cooking a complex recipe without a list of ingredients. It would be a chaotic and inefficient process, right? The same principle applies to manufacturing and production. That's where the Bill of Materials (BOM) comes into play. In this article, we will explore the meaning, purpose, and diverse types of BOMs, illustrating how they serve as the foundation for seamless production processes.

The Role of API Inventory in SBOM and Cyber Security

Creating a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) is crucial to software supply chain security management. It helps fortify your software supply chain and reduces the likeliness of your software being exploited. But did you know there's a way to enhance your software's security further? Well, that's when API inventory comes into the picture. Including API inventory in your SBOM can make your software solution more resilient to cyberattacks.
