Application-layer threats are evolving rapidly to evade traditional security measures — and the strategies and technologies being developed to combat them effectively are also growing more sophisticated. From fifth-gen malicious bots that mimic human behavior, to multi-stage ransomware that exploits application vulnerabilities, to API and software-supply-chain attacks, to massive new vulnerabilities such as Log4J, there’s a whole new world of threats out there.
OWASP — the premiere public-interest research organization documenting, analyzing, and ranking application and API threats — has taken notice of the dramatic changes to the application threat landscape. If you have anything to do with application security, you’re already familiar with the OWASP Top 10 list of application threats. It’s a handy summary of the most prominent and effective threat modalities, which can be tremendously helpful to IT security pros looking to prioritize efforts to improve app security infrastructures.
An all-new OWASP Top 10 for 2022
The latest iteration of the OWASP Top 10 is significantly different from earlier lists — and if you’re not fully informed on the changes to how they’re categorizing threats, how they’ve updated their terminology, and how they’ve updated their research methodology, you may not be able to interpret the new information from OWASP correctly. And that could result in security gaps that leave you vulnerable to some of the most dangerous new threats.
That’s why you should be sure to attend a new webinar from Barracuda called “New Threats, New Categories: What’s in the New OWASP Top 10.” The presenters will be VP of Application Security Product Management Nitzan Miron and Senior Application Security Product Manager Tushar Richabadas, and they’ll deliver a clear, detailed explanation of:
- What’s in the new OWASP Top 10
- How to use the list to help build and implement an effective application-security strategy
- How Barracuda’s live, real-world threat intelligence data — gathered from globally distributed honeypots and solution installs — maps onto the new OWASP Top 10 list
Tools and technologies to combat the newest threats
They’ll also demonstrate how the newest capabilities and integrations in Barracuda’s web application and API protection (WAAP) solutions can make it exceptionally easy to secure your web and API applications against the entire range of advanced threats, including those listed in the OWASP Top 10, zero-day attacks, modern bot and DDoS attacks, and more.
Staying ahead of the newest threat trends is just part of the job for IT security pros. And the OWASP Top 10 list is a critically important tool to help you do it. Be sure to attend this webinar, and get the info and insights you need to make the best use of this tool with full understanding of how it’s been transformed to adapt to the threats coming your way in the new year.
