Cyber Security Awareness Month: Starting October off with a Successful Security Event.

In honor of National Cyber Security Awareness Month and in response to several notable and national security breaches, we've been focusing our efforts on raising awareness of online security. With that in mind, on October 6th Spud Software teamed with VioPoint to host a Lunch & Learn Panel Discussion at Automation Alley that highlighted the benefits and risks of application security.

Led by a team of three panelists from Spud Software, VioPoint and Vigilant Cyber Security, the Lunch & Learn discussion focused on the importance of implementing secure development practices and application security measures to protect companies from data breaches as a result of vulnerabilities within their web applications. 

When it comes to application development and security, the panel highlighted the challenges facing developers in this ever-changing environment. Unfortunately, they noted, for most companies, web application security is still under-emphasized, despite the vital role it plays in the security of their data. Web applications are often the first line of entry to a company's online space and are thus exposed to a wide variety of threats. This makes secure software design and development increasingly important.

In fact, the numbers are nearly staggering when it comes to the vulnerability of most web applications. At least 69% of applications contain security vulnerabilities. Of those, 80% feature at least one security vulnerability, with most averaging 45 vulnerabilities per application. And the average time to remediate these security threats is 129 days. That gives cyber criminals more than 4 months to exploit these vulnerabilities and steal a company's data.

Approximately 20 guests from a variety of industries attended the Lunch & Learn panel discussion and were very receptive to the information presented. In fact, one attendee has already requested that Spud Software work with them to implement further security measures on their existing web application.

If you're interested in learning more about web applications and how they can impact your business, you can join us on November 2nd for the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce Business Development Series. Larry Bossman, Spud Software's Sales Director, will be hosting a discussion on how to make software investments profitable for your company.
