Cyber-attacks against public domain resources continue to be one of the common causes of data breaches. Many of these attacks are automated and do not target specific businesses, but rather scan the internet for known weaknesses to exploit.
There are many motivations for these attacks which include monitory gain, defacement, malware deployment, Denial of Service (DoS), to gain notoriety, or simply just for fun!
If your application is found to be vulnerable, malicious actors may use your application to host malicious content to be delivered to unsuspecting victims in other attack vectors.
Today's businesses large and small have an obligation now more than ever to provide a secure and safe online experience for their customers.
Many cybersecurity experts believe that it is not a case of 'if' you get attacked but rather 'when'. In most instances these breaches could have been avoided, the damage to a brands reputation due to cyber incidents does not bode well for any business.
