Doesn’t Salesforce take care of security for us?
It is more complicated than that
Salesforce is one of the most confided in cloud stages out there. Nonetheless, it’s adaptable to the point that weaknesses can be presented at whatever point code is included. Improvements with Apex, LWC, Aura, Visualforce, and so on, are not secure of course: you need to effectively check them to guarantee they are secure.
What can possibly happen if I have uncertain code in my organization?
For instance, one could have a well-architected job pecking order with very granular article and field-level authorizations set up and accept that that is their security arranged. However, those limitations could be totally circumvented by clients within the sight of a security imperfection.
