Every organization affected by the GDPR will need a comprehensive approach to open source security management as it pertains to GDPR observance.
For example, the Heartbleed vulnerability first surfaced in 2014 to steal personal taxpayer data. Yet, years later, thousands of companies still use software with open source components containing Heartbleed, opening themselves to possible data breaches and GDPR fines.
If you will be classified as a “processor” of customer data by the GDPR, turn that classification to your advantage. Open new business opportunities for your firm by demonstrating comprehensive GDPR observance that includes open source security management.
