Topic: Fundamental Causes of Vulnerabilities and How Incident Handling Can Solve Vulnerability Issues

Watch Now


While recent years saw exponential growth in digital advancements and an increase expansion to remote workforce. This rapid change in operations and technologies was unforgiving in revealing inadequate security measures. Attackers are leveraging these security gaps and launching sophisticated attacks to exploit even minor security vulnerabilities to bypass security infrastructure, launch cyberattacks, infest systems and networks with malware, or conduct data breaches.

Some of the most common security vulnerabilities are:

  1. Malware infestation
  2. SQL injection
  3. Authorization bypass
  4. Unrestricted upload of malicious content
  5. Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)

Security vulnerabilities allow attackers to potentially gain unauthorized access to systems, potentially allowing them to bypassing the authentication process, upload, edit or delete files, data records, and applications from systems. Therefore, it is incredibly vital to proactively identify and report vulnerabilities early on, to mitigate before they can be exploited. Organizations can build security research and incident handling response strategies to proactively tackle the risk from security vulnerabilities. An incident management strategy includes creating a pre-planned process that considers every aspect of an incident, its after-effects, and countermeasures for a future incident of a similar type.
This webinar will focus on creating a proactive security management process that includes incident response and security research.

Key takeaways:

  • Introduction to Incident Handling and Response Plan
  • Importance of Offensive Security Research
  • Identifying areas to focus
  • How to leverage security vulnerabilities to educate development practices
