Web Security Management

Today most of the information is transferred through web. Therefore website security becomes the major aspect of securing data. Since organizations have adopted web based technologies to conduct e-business with customers, suppliers and stakeholders, it has given rise to many security risks. If web applications are not secure i.e. sensitive to, any one of the various forms of hacking techniques, then entire database of sensitive information is at serious risk.

Today most of the information is transferred through web, which leads to many risks like-
  • Accessing the Internet is a security risk: - When you are connected to the Internet, an IP address is used to identify your PC. If you don't protect yourself, this IP address can be used to access your computer from the outside world.
  • A fixed IP address is a larger security risk:- If you're using a modem with a dial-up connection, you will get a new IP address every time you connect to Internet, but if you have a fixed Internet connection (cable, ADSL, fixed line), your IP address will never change.
  • Bugs or misconfiguration problems in the Web Server.
  • Browser-side risks.
