The Ultimate Guide to Client-side Security – Executive Overview

​​In a world in which commerce, business, and information are driven almost exclusively by the internet, protecting both consumers and data is critical. Over the past few months I’ve spent a significant amount of time researching front-end and client-side security to understand the pitfalls of the JavaScript programming language and how businesses can protect themselves from JavaScript-based cyber attacks. I’d like to present to you the culmination of my research: The Ultimate Guide to Client-side Security.

This book provides readers with a detailed guide for understanding how modern websites and web applications work within the context of client-side interactions and the dangers inherent in the client-side coding structures that underpin website functionality. It examines a wide range of concerns and issues, from the basic vulnerabilities and flaws that exist in commonly used code, such as JavaScript, to the types of threats and attacks that are increasingly targeting organizations that deliver goods and services to businesses and consumers via websites and applications.

Client-side threat detection and response is crucial to protecting businesses today, particularly as threats continue to advance and expand. While modern websites and the JavaScript code that powers them can offer businesses an opportunity for phenomenal growth, the applications and plugins used to drive the client side also introduce tremendous risk by creating a demonstrable security gap during end-user engagement.

It is no longer enough to simply secure the perimeter and server side with tools like firewalls. Organizations must protect their front end or “client side” if they want to ensure growth and consumer safety.

E-book Components

The e-book contains seven primary sections: 

  1. Client-side Attacks and JavaScript Code
  2. Modern Web Application Architecture 101
  3. Client-side Risks and Threats
  4. JavaScript Security Approaches & Technologies
  5. Operationalizing Client-side Security
  6. Client-side Threat Detection & Prevention
  7. How to Recover from a Client-side Attack

Each of these sections addresses key issues related to the topic from a client-side perspective and provides the reader with guidance in understanding and approaching client-side security.

I’d like to invite you to download the e-book to get a broad understanding of client-side security and how you can protect your business from Magecart, cross-site scripting, formjacking, and the plethora of other cyberthreats attacking the front end of your web applications.
