Cybersecurity Risks for Low-Code No-Code Applications and Bots



65% of all enterprise applications will be based on low-code/no-code platforms by 2024, estimates Gartner.


The proliferation of applications and automations created by citizen developers using such platforms are posing a real challenge to CISOs and cybersecurity teams everywhere, particularly in the areas of governance, compliance and security.


Some food for thought:

  • Do you maintain an up-to-date inventory of all your apps and bots in a multiple-platform environment?

  • How do you ensure that the latest patches are applied to your apps and bots in the ‘live’ environment?

  • Are the apps and bots created by your citizen developers vetted for compliance with regulatory or industry standards?

  • How to mitigate the risk of data leakage, especially PII, within your apps or bots?

  • Do you scan for common security vulnerabilities like hardcoded credentials or malicious codes inside your apps and bots?

  • Have you established an effective process for reviewing all app and bot changes prior to their deployment to production?


While low-code/no-code software provides real benefits including increased speed and agility, securing critical assets and data and protecting business continuity is equally important.
