    The trend of cyberattacks has grown a lot in the past few years, and with the increasing need for online systems, it may increase even more in coming years. So, every company must secure its systems against such attacks, and penetration testing is an effective option.

    Penetration testing (Pen-testing) tests your system by emulating cyber-attacks on the system, network and applications. Thus, you can see the vulnerabilities of your system. It can be automated or manual, but in either case, it shows the vulnerabilities of your IT infrastructure.

    Why is Penetration Testing Important in Cyber Security?

    With cyberattacks becoming more frequent, a cost-effective solution is required, and penetration testing makes a great option. Here are some reasons why it is important today..

      OTP stands for the one-time password or one-time passcode and is a form of multi factor authentication (MFA). Almost every website or application now supports the functionality of the OTP due to rising security concerns. When you create a new account on a website or an application, or even if you are an existing user of any particular app, you can enable the OTP to protect the misuse of your data and identity theft.

      Once enabled, the system then asks you to put in your email address or mobile phone, over which it sends a code each time you enter your login credentials. You then must enter that code alongside your credentials to successfully log into your account. If the OTP you received does not match the entered OTP, the system will give you an error, and you will not be able to log in successfully.

        The modern-day web apps depend on a shorter delivery time with fewer cost expectations. Thus, API usage has been highly boosted in the past few years. While there are obvious cost, time, and effort-related benefits for the developers, there are some security concerns.

        The Open Web Application Security Project® (OWASP) is a nonprofit foundation that works to improve the security of software. Through community-led open-source software projects, hundreds of local chapters worldwide, tens of thousands of members, and leading educational and training conferences, the OWASP Foundation is the source for developers and technologists to secure the web.

          Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a security feature that requires two different factors to access your account. This includes something you know (a password), and something you have (your phone). 2FA is used to protect sensitive data like bank accounts, credit cards, social media accounts, etc.

          2-factor Authentication (2FA)

          2FA is a security measure that requires two different factors to complete an action. This is done to prevent unauthorized access to your account. In order to log into your account, you need to provide both something you know (your password), and something you have (a physical device).

            Digital trust is a term used to describe how people interact online. This includes their use of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc. These are places where we share information about ourselves and our lives. We share pictures, videos, personal messages, links, etc. In this sense, these are public spaces that anyone can view. People need to understand that any information posted online is publicly accessible and searchable.

              Cybercrime is getting their hands deeper and deeper day by day. Due to weak security ends, we face cybercrime problems. Yes, cybercriminals basically know about the vulnerabilities of your website or software, and they simply work on them to finally get a grip on your system.

              Once the cybercriminals are inside your system, they can do anything. They can get access to any of your personal information, and you might also end up facing heavy losses. Every cybercriminal has its own plan to try to hack that part of your computer from where it will be able to get access to its required information.

              No programming language is 100% secure. There will be vulnerabilities at some point in all types of programming languages, including JavaScript.

                1) Codeigniter 4.1.8 is a security update:

                XSS Vulnerability in the API\ResponseTrait was fixed.

                2) Codeigniter 4.1.7 brings the following main update:

                FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING - replaced

                3) Codeigniter 4.1.6 also brings some security updates, such as:

                Deserialization of Untrusted Data found in the old() function was fixed.

                fix: Validation cannot handle array item


                As a conclusion, for security reasons you should always update to the last version of the framework that you're using, even if it's Codeigniter, Laravel, Symfony or others.

                  More and more enterprises now are converting to mobile and cloud technologies. As a result, they are moving away from the traditional network boundaries as well as the capabilities of their solutions regarding access and identity management. However, the Identity as a Service solution has become a more amazing option to determine the identity of the users before granting them access to any application or network.

                    Personal Identifiable Information (PII) is a form of information that can be described as a separate form of data when it is used individually or as grouped information as well. The main goal of personally identifiable information is that it carries the basic information regarding a person that may include various categories.

                      Open ports are ideal for allowing the services and other applications to run smoothly and perform their functions without interference. The main function of an open port is that they provide the basis for good communication. Without the use of ports, communication can be not much smooth and might be disrupted.


                      There can be unusual times when several ports can be left open without knowing the real cause. Sometimes it can be due to the neglect of an employee or it can be due to a firewall configuration that can leave some ports open as well.
