Application Security

Third Party Penetration tests are performed before all major production releases. 

  • All critical, high and medium risk vulnerabilities found during the review are remediated before code updates are released to the production site or mobile applications. 
  • An attestation letter from each third party vendor for recent penetration tests is in the full Directors Desk Information Security Packet, which is available upon request.

The Nasdaq Group Information Security Team has a role in the software development lifecycle for both web and mobile applications.
