You may not often look for application security lessons from the game of football, but their fundamentals aren’t so different. In football, the defense blocks the opposing team from getting to the end zone. It’s bad news for your team if the opposition scores a touchdown.
In security, if the bad guys score a touchdown by hacking into your firm’s sensitive information-filled software, your defensive strategy has failed and it’s safe to say you’ve lost the big game. Don’t let that happen! Boost your organization’s application security defense strategy.
