Ron Lepofsky breaks down the technical barrier and identifies many real-world examples of security vulnerabilities commonly found by IT security auditors, translates them into business risks with identifiable consequences, and provides practical guidance about mitigating them. This book describes how to fix and prevent these vulnerabilities in easy-to-understand discussions of vulnerability classes and their remediation. Topics include: explaining to executives what the application security team is saying in terms of risk and remediation and how to express threats in terms of business risk; details about currently relevant vulnerabilities, by vulnerability class and risk level; decision criteria for what type of security audit is required for your environment; information about standards compliance, including appendices that detail relevant standards, such as COBIT5 IT Security, Experian EI3PA Security Audit Standard, and PCI DSS. --
