In April 2020, the Dutch Government's Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport was searching for a contact-tracing app that could help manage COVID-19. To ensure the security and reliability of the eight down selected apps, they called in the cyber practitioners from KPMG in the Netherlands.
The study was rapid yet rigorous but, unfortunately, vulnerabilities were found in the design and implementation of the apps that needed to be addressed. When it comes to public health data, you can't compromise on security.
And sometimes the one thing worse than calling a halt is moving ahead. This is why you should always build cyber security and regulatory compliance into every stage of your digital journey. The more confident you are in the foundations, the bolder you can be with your innovation.
Could stronger cyber security help to accelerate your digital transformation?
