Closing that busines logic attack vector

Lets start with the steps

🩴The first step in protecting your data is knowing where it is stored and who has access to it. Make sure you have a list of all the places where your sensitive data is stored, including both digital and physical locations. Then, review who has access to each location. If possible, restrict access to only those who absolutely need it.

2. Implement security measures like firewalls and encryption.

Once you know where your sensitive data is stored, you can start implementing security measures to protect it. Firewalls and encryption are two of the most important measures you can take. Firewalls can help prevent unauthorized access to your network, while encryption can make it difficult for hackers to read your data even if they are able to access it.

3. Educate your employees about security risks and best practices.

Your employees are one of your biggest assets when it comes to protecting your data. Make sure they are aware of the risks and that they know the best practices for keeping their information safe. This includes things like using strong passwords, not sharing passwords with others, and not clicking on links from unknown sources.

4. Stay uptodate on the latest security threats.

Threats are constantly evolving, so it’s important to stay uptodate on the latest security risks. One way to do this is to subscribe to security newsletters or RSS feeds. This will help you stay informed about new threats so you can take steps to protect your business.

5. Have a plan in place in case of a data breach.

Despite taking all the precautions, there’s always a chance that your business could be affected by a data breach. That’s why it’s important to have a plan in place for how you would handle such a situation. This plan should include steps for how you would notify customers, what steps you would take to secure your data, and how you would prevent future breaches from happening

The above steps will bring your security to a good balance, but your F$%&ed if you got to this point reading, as none of the above will help you in stopping a dedicated business logic attack.

What is business logic attacks 🧠

A business logic attack is an attack on the application layer of a system that targets the consistency, correctness, and integrity of the data and processes. This type of attack exploits vulnerabilities in the way that the business logic is implemented, often resulting in data or process corruption.

There are many reasons why it is complex to defend against business logic attacks. One reason is that attackers can exploit many different types of vulnerabilities to gain access to sensitive data or systems. Another reason is that attackers can use a variety of techniques to bypass security controls or to disguise their activities. Finally, businesses often have complex networks and systems, which makes it difficult to identify and fix vulnerabilities.

In my next articles I will begin a series talking about way to defend from business logic attacks.
