RSA USA Preview: ‘It’s A Jungle Out There: The Security State of the CMS Platform’

Feb 11, 2014 By Sarah Vonnegut


Checkmarx Founder & CTO Maty Siman will be leading a session at the conference this year on the security of the most popular content management systems and how to protect yourself against attacks:

It’s a Jungle Out There: The Security State of CMS Platforms

February 26th | 10:40 AM | Room 3012

Most likely your organization is using a CMS-based site—whether for blogging, site delivery or user-engagement. However, our research showed that 20% of the 50 most popular WordPress plugins are vulnerable to common Web attacks. How do other platforms fare? The talk will discuss the penetration of CMS platforms into the organization, the risks and best practices to secure your CMS-based sites.

Siman is well-versed in application security and the industry in general. After serving six years with the Israeli Defence Forces where he established and led a development team in the Army Information Security Center, Siman stayed on as senior IT security expert in the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office.
