About Cyber Ninjas

Do You Have a Cyber Ninja on Your Side?
The headlines are increasingly filled with articles about hackers compromising systems and stealing data. While it often seems like they must be utilizing some dark ninja magic to accomplish their amazing feats; the reality is that most security breaches are conducted utilizing types of security vulnerabilities we’ve known how to prevent for over 10 years. Despite this theoretical knowledge being available, we find very few individuals involved in the software development life cycle who actually understand how these vulnerabilities occur and what needs to be done to avoid them.
