Security Innovation Webinar on March 21 to Address Application Security Challenges that Threaten GDPR Compliance - Security Innovation


March 15, 2018 – Security Innovation, a pioneer in software security assessment and training, today announced that on Wednesday, March 21 at 12:00 p.m. EDT (UTC -04:00), the company will provide a complimentary webinar on how organizations can incorporate application security best practices into their InfoSec programs to achieve GDPR compliance.

The Security Innovation webcast, “GDPR: The AppSec Twist,” is part of the company’s ongoing educational programing for security, IT, and development professionals.  Anyone interested can register for free here.

The GDPR applies not only to organizations located within the EU, but also to any company worldwide that does business involving personal data of EU residents through the offering of goods or services.

When GDPR becomes law on May 25, it will be the most wide-ranging and stringent data protection initiative in history. To prepare for this sea change, most organizations have streamlined and detailed their information security policies; however, many are unaware that immature application security programs arguably pose the biggest threat of a data breach. This often overlooked component of data protection puts organizations at risk for GDPR-related fines and regulatory action.

“Applications run modern day business and perform the majority of data processing and storage – yet 90% of attacks still occur at the application layer,” explained Lisa Parcella, VP of Product Management & Marketing at Security Innovation.  “This enormous data exposure has organizations on edge as they scramble to meet the GDPR requirements that go into effect this May.  We encourage everyone who does not have an air-tight approach to application security to attend this Webinar.”

Webinar Overview:

Delivered by two application security experts, Roman Garber, Development Manager at Security Innovation and Edward Skraba, Lead Penetration Tester at SmartTech247, this Webinar will help you determine if your organization is equipped to meet the application security implications of GDPR and present practical tips you can apply immediately to minimize your risk of non-compliance.

Topics Include: 

  • Summary of GDPR key concepts
  • Security of data processing in software and the CIA triad
  • The people and process problem of GDPR: Governance
