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.
