Obstacles that cause attacks on security applications by hackers

Lately, there has been an increase in global hacker data breaches. In Australia, the Australian Information Commissioner's office (OAIC) Revealed that with just one incident, the information, more than 10 million people were at risk. In Singapore, the information of thousands of blood donors from the Red Cross was leaked. And in the US, another cloud data breach, revealed the 80 personal data of millions of households. This shows that hackers have turned their attention to higher value goals.

Verizon in a recent report has shown that web application attacks are still the most common tool for data breaches. The majority of the attacks had to do with hackers who used them credentials users. The report also revealed that financial services, health care, education services, retail and industrial production were more vulnerable to vulnerabilities.


The results of the investigations carried out show the great need for industries and businesses to reconsider their security practices and resolve their internal failures.

Therefore, it is advisable to clarify the obstacles that may arise, to block the security of their systems, and in theory to allow an attack by hackers.

Initially business needs are large and the time required for security testing is long. Especially if you think several procedures are done manually.

Development teams do not have security knowledge. Security teams lack development know-how. This means that cooperation between them will be rather ineffective.

Technology does not involve security. However, all decisions must always be safety-conscious.

Many times, looking for defects brings wrong results.

The security of software applications is essential and in most cases it costs.

Quite often, businesses do not approach security in the light of what has been said above and are called upon to deal with the various problems that arise.

The most common problem is the late detection of a security issue and, by extension, the risk of placing customers at risk of attack by hackers. Of course, there is always the moral hazard that security groups may be considered insolvent if they do not work according to the timetable.

New approaches to applications security they introduce automation, artificial intelligence technology and human intelligence. These certainly can be much more cost-effective and prevent attacks from hackers.
