How do government regulations address application security?

When it comes to Web application security, government regulations such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) don't say much. SearchAppSecurity.com expert Caleb Sima explains.

How do government regulations such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) address Web application security?
Web security is not specifically called out in HIPAA, GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley or even the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). Only general info security and system requirements are discussed. However, Visa's Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI) does have sections specifically dedicated to Web security. I predict we will see more focus on Web security in government regulations in the future due to the rapid growth toward a Web-enabled world.
