The Challenge

With cyber-crime now bigger than the drug trade, criminal organizations are treating data breaches in a structured fashion. They have teams maintaining current knowledge of the latest published exploits and others researching zero-day exploits. This knowledge is feed into increasingly sophisticated tools to assist their attack teams to exploit discovered flaws in your applications. The goal is often to steal data from any organization and later determine whether this data is valuable.

For these speculative breach organizations there is the classic fiscal imperative to minimize the cost of exploit. Hence they use a number of Web Application and API hygiene indicators to quickly assess their probability of success.

The first security goal is to ensure that these factors are addressed across your entire perimeter, protecting you from known automated exploit tools and thereby making your organization an expensive target.
