Web Application Vulnerability Testing

This FIPCO® service can provide necessary guidance for testing for vulnerabilities in web based applications such as home banking, customer service, ecommerce and other web-based applications and deployments. Web application vulnerability testing refers to a set of services used to detect various security issues in web based applications. There has been significant growth in organizations performing day to day business on the web, yet a small percentage of websites are regularly and professionally tested for vulnerabilities. This increases the potential for attacks of a website that lead to compromise.

FIPCO uses a commercial web application vulnerability scanning tools to test for vulnerabilities including:

  • Cross-Site Scripting
  • SQL Attacks
  • OS Attacks
  • Directory Traversal
  • Cookie Manipulation
"We're a small bank, but we have all the concerns of a mega-bank. We do not have the time or resources to do what Ken does with IT Audit, so we needed the outside expertise to make sure we were following the guidelines that the regulators require. Ken was very focused on how to assess risks specific to our institution."

- Mike Lee, First National Bank at Darlington
