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
"The IT Risk Assessment and Review that Ken completed for us was specifically geared towards financial institutions. Not only did Ken identify what a particular risk was, but he also explained why the risk was there, and offered solutions for eliminating that risk. It really puts us in a comfort zone."

- Jeff Schmid, Fox River State Bank, Burlington
