HP releases 2013 Cyber Risk Report

Earlier this week the HP 2013 Cyber Risk Report was released. So far, it's been covered in featured articles in the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Business Week, and SC Magazine, to name but a few. In other words, it's kind of a big deal. So why is it so important?


For one, the report examines the specific things that leave organizations vulnerable to attack. It's the culmination of a year's worth of real world testing of applications (both traditional and mobile) and research conducted by the HP Security Research group (HPSR) in multiple areas of focus. It examines  both the nature of the vulnerabilities that leave organizations unsafe (the organization’s “attack surface”) and how adversaries currently abuse those vulnerabilities. It challenges readers to think specifically about how their organization is most likely to be attacked - and how to best allocate security funds to counter those threats.


Among a small sampling of the key report findings:













•56% of the applications tested exhibited weaknesses to revealing information about the application, its implementation or its users.
•74% of applications exhibit unnecessary permissions.
•80% of applications are vulnerable to misconfiguration vulnerabilities.
•Hybrid development frameworks for mobile apps don’t address many well-known security issues.


The full report has in-depth information concerning those findings, and much, much more. To register to download the report, visit HP 2013 Cyber Risk Report.
