Funding Among Reasons for App Security Breaches
DATA PROTECTIONSeptember 18, 2012
A recent survey has found that the majority of companies questioned experienced at least one web application security incident since last year, Network World reports. In the Forrester study, which questioned 240 North American and EU companies, 18 percent reported a breach had cost their organization $500,000 or more and indicated the incident had a negative impact on their brand. Among the reasons for the security failures were an inability to secure additional funding for technology and processes, a lack of tools for application security and pressure to quickly deliver new products and services. SQL injection was the leading cause of breaches at organizations that had experienced five to 10 incidents since 2011.
