System Security.... Everyone's Problem!

It seems that more and more today the number of systems being hacked is growing! Now I recently read in the Washington post that the hackers have breached unclassified White House computers! I guess system security is not just the IT department’s problem! Maybe we should all lend a hand? Like crowd-funding? Just do what you can to pitch in! I want to do my part by sharing a very useful security tool that you can use for testing your own internal systems. Please check out Portswigger’s Burp security tool! The website is www.portswigger.net. And no I am not related to nor do I have any connection with this company! 

Salesforce.com recommends the use of this tool for its ISV’s so I guess I am not alone in recommending it https://security.secure.force.com/security/tools/webapp/burpabout 

Anyway, send your security department a belated holiday gift by sharing this information with them! 

Do your part!
