How to Create a Business Case for Web Application Security

  • 1077 Accesses

Abstract

The security of web applications, particularly those that are transaction platforms and those in a constant state of change, is costly to achieve and to maintain. Now, pile on privacy and regulatory-compliance testing and remediating, and the related costs become frustrating to senior managers who see no tangible or visible improvement to the web applications. These expenses must be cost justified in terms of risk and return on investment.
