Web security and cyber security are both two aspects of our browsing and business experiences that we must prioritize as we power through 2020. They’re essential to our privacy and security as we use the internet on a day to day basis. So, what are the web security trends for this year? This year we expect the build-up of a newer security market category, growing more targets in automation, and more. Here are some of the top web security trends to watch for in 2020.
The Rise of “Crowdsourced Security” market
Keeping up the threat landscape is a common point for many developer teams. Many developers know security is paramount but do not have enough time to spend on it. Even with a solid overview of your software inventory, the digitalization of companies requires modern and automated ways of working out with security, which is why more are adopting security measures. This means they’re gaining knowledge from external experts, or ethical hackers and bug bounty hunters. This will help developers create more solutions to combat actual cybercriminals who might be looking to breach people’s data. It is heavily predicted that companies add these kinds of security services into their toolboxes.
CD/CI Automation Becoming the Low Hanging Fruit
Today, the low-hanging fruit is rarely ever finding a SQL injection on a website. Still, these attackers are beginning to look elsewhere for easier access to sensitive information and internal servers. This is otherwise known as the automation process. Taking into consideration the increasing CD and CI processes and tools, there’s attack surfaces that, while not exactly new, have become more critical. This means misconfigurations, the tools, and dependencies that are used for orchestration and deployment, or a storage spot for API tokens for integrations, are at an increased risk for attackers. The CI/CD tools that are used in the cloud can accidentally leave internal data exposed online due to a lack of security. This is a web security trend to look out for this year.
Make it a Safe Year
There isn’t a silver bullet to security, and its ultimately a sum of many things. These include threat-modeling, asset monitoring, and automated security, just to name a few. Developers must be on their toes this year to provide everyone with the best form of web security.
