Invicti, the company behind Acunetix and Netsparker, has been securing public sector web applications for years, working with prominent agencies such as NIH, DOT and the United States Armed Forces.
As part of GovLoop’s Cyber Resiliency Guide, Bouncing Back: How Your Agency Can Handle Disruption and Embrace Resilience, Ted Rutsch, Netsparker Federal Account Executive, discussed the importance of web application security to help government agencies maintain strong IT security risk postures and compliance.
