Code Review – the Supreme Discipline of Security Analyses
Businesses today invest a lot in a wide range of security measures to protect their infrastructures from attacks. These include working with certified vendors, ensuring secure business operations, training employees to increase their security awareness, implementing an incident response process and much more. But what if the affected application already has a built-in security gap that nobody knows about?
