Application Security Survey Results: Executive Summary

In a survey of more than 100 banking/security leaders, 57% of respondents say they are somewhat or very confident in their own applications, and 90% say application security is somewhat or a significant part of their overall information security programs.

However, when it comes to applications developed or managed by third-party service providers, 81% are only somewhat or not at all confident in the security, and this faith erodes even further with large institutions ($2 billion or more in assets under management), where 91% are only somewhat/not at all confident.

These are the key findings of this survey aimed at gauging the scope and strength of institutions' application security programs. The survey, administered electronically in August, drew more than 100 responses from financial institutions of all sizes.
