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
"During the IT Audit, not only did Ken show us how to preclude risks to our institution, but he also told us what not to worry about. Ken has contacted me on repeated occasions to let me know about something that may affect our institution. It's nice to know that this is an ongoing relationship."

- Mike Lee, First National Bank at Darlington
