IT Governance has created a webinar to help organisations understand how penetration testing can help improve existing security measures for securing personal information and comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Regular penetration testing can prevent cyber criminals from exploiting defects in web servers, browsers, email clients, point-of-sale (POS) software, operating systems and server interfaces, so it is an essential part of GDPR compliance. Article 32 of the Regulation states that organisations that process EU residents’ personal data need to have in place “a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing”.
- Penetration testing and its role in demonstrating GDPR compliance;
- Implementing technical measures to ensure data security and compliance with Article 32 of the GDPR;
- Why penetration tests are vital in uncovering vulnerabilities before criminals do; and
- How to meet legislative and regulatory requirements and achieve an integrated approach with standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), ISO 27001 and the GDPR.
