Web Application Security spreads over the application functionality, the platform it is running on, the development and deployment environment, third-party applications used, and last but not least, the open source code it utilizes. The requirements breadth is mind-boggling. You ignore any of these aspects and you become vulnerable.
This talk will discuss a structured approach to establish essential security requirements based on the CIA triad. The discussion will then expand over how these requirements manifest in the industry standards such as PCI, Government agencies, and globally. It will also delve into third party and open source code scenarios. The audience will take home a checklist of different aspects of security requirements to consider when building a Web application.
