What is Code Signing?
If you are a CISO or holding an equivalent position for any organization, one of the biggest nightmares would be failure of line of defense for data security. One such important module relevant to data protection is “Code Signing”. Organization has to be aware of threats posed to Code signing process and implement reasonable recommendations for tackling the issues.
According to a study conducted by Venafi, it is understood that out of 320 participants from USA, Europe and Canada more than 28% implement a defined code signing policy for protecting certificates used for signing code. There are high chances of forging and stealing of certificates by cyber hackers when proper policies are not enforced for code signing.
