With the increasing practice of outsourcing and using 3rd party libraries, it is nearly impossible for an enterprise to identify the pedigree and security of the software running its business critical applications. As a result backdoors and malicious code are increasingly becoming the prevalent attack vector used by hackers.
Whether you manage internal development activities, work with third party developers or are developing a COTS application for enterprise, your mandate is clear- safeguard your code and make applications security a priority for internal and external development teams.
In this session we will cover;
· Prevalence of backdoors and malicious code in third party attacks
· Definitions and classifications of backdoors and their impact on your applications
· Methods to identify, track and remediate these vulnerabilities
