TVM Insurance is a specialized European logistics and mobility insurer with leading products and services. TVM has its own system development department. The department is developing more and more web applications to optimize service to customers. An example is “My TVM.” ITsec has provided the “Secure Programming” training for developers of TVM insurance.
The security of (web) applications is becoming increasingly important. This is reflected, among other things, in the rising number of internet-related security incidents and the fast-growing cybercrime. ITsec provided a training secure programming for the developers of TVM insurance. Developers learned to develop secure web applications to handle common attacks such as: input manipulation, SQL injection, Cross-Site Scripting, and abuse of weak authentication.
Basis of ITsec’s training is the ‘Secure Software Lifecycle’. Attention is paid to the design, development and testing of (web) applications. ITsec also performed a security assessment on MY TVM prior to the training. The results of the assessment served as an example and were used in training exercises. This proved to be very effective. Together with TVM, ITsec is continuing to implement structural improvements.
