Tip from a CISO

“Input validation can be the most important single source or prevention against many security vulnerabilities. For new projects, make this one of your fundamental criteria selecting  language/framework.  For existing projects, if your existing technology does not provide solid input validation, evaluate creating your own function and make sure to call it each time.”
