Be Aware…not scared: Web application cybersecurity month



Web applications have become a key tool for any company nowadays, it doesn´t matter if they are used just as an informative/marketing tool or the main sales/booking platform of a business, they are one of the most attacked parts of the infrastructure.

Since the start of the global pandemic and recent events involving war conflicts in Europe, the attacks targeting web applications have skyrocketed aiming at both public and private entities and the result was that in 2021, 50% of all data breaches began with web applications (Imperva Research Labs).   

In 2021, 9,7m DDoS attacks were registered with a potential revenue loss of 9 to 12$ million. (Netscout report Issue 8) and between 2020 and 2021, the number of malicious web application requests climbed 88% (Radware, 2021-2022 Global Threat Analysis Report).

So, what can we do to protect our web applications? What cybersecurity measures do we need to put in place? How can I know if I am vulnerable in case of an attack?
