Client-Side Security

A critical component of 3rd party risk management

If you haven’t addressed client-side security, your WebSec strategy is incomplete. The 3rd party digital supply chain that your business relies upon to drive the user experience is the same pathway your adversaries rely upon to steal sensitive customer data – credit card data, PII, PHI…it is all ready for the taking due to the vulnerabilities introduced by the 3rd party JavaScript running on your web properties. 

You need to enable the business – which means you can’t do away with these third parties – but you need to also ensure data is protected at the point of input. Without full visibility into your 3rd party digital supply chain, or a mechanism to control the actions of the scripts running on your websites, your organization is at risk of material losses both in the form of security response and fines for data privacy non-compliance. 

Cyber-criminals have shifted their focus to stealing data at the point of input. Source Defense is the pioneer in client-side security and we want to help you better understand the issue and plug this critical gap in your websec strategy. Below you can find a number of resources that will help you better understand the client-side security and data privacy issue.
