The verinice.TEAM releases verinice 1.19, a version optimized for stability and performance in many respects. More than 50 detail improvements and bug fixes especially improve the areas performance, AD import, task workflow as well as report queries and reporting.
Data protection module 3 with data protection impact assessment and risk analysis
Version 3 of the data protection module supports users in implementing the GDPR as of verinice 1.19 in the data protection impact assessment and data protection risk analysis. For the risk analysis, the data protection module was extended by data protection-relevant risk scenarios. For better orientation, the legal texts of the GDPR, the recitals and the legal texts of the BDSG (new) are included and linked according to the dependencies.
In addition to the variant for use in the ISM perspective, data protection module 3 will also be available in a few days in a variant for use in the perspective of modernized IT basic protection. Users can thus directly use the module requirements of the IT Baseline Protection Compendium as TOM.
This module is currently only available in German. By early 2020 an English content version will be published at verinice.SHOP.
IT Basic Protection Profiles
verinice 1.19 optimally supports users of the modernized IT-Grundschutz in the creation and use of IT-Grundschutz profiles. All IT-Grundschutz-Profiles published and licensed by the BSI can be downloaded from the verinice website for import into verinice 1.19 in the coming days.
VDA ISA 4.1.1
verinice 1.19 supports the VDA ISA catalogue in version 4.1.1 for TISAX in German and English. In the VDA perspective, users can carry out information security assessments including the additional modules prototypes, third party integration and data protection.
