Challenge

Challenge

Generali had the task of choosing the most significant applications, within its Italian portfolio of 20 apps, both internally and externally.
This was to appraise safety and assess effort and risk management.

Initially, the project came under the IT risk management department, but it later shifted to a more comprehensive security focus. As a result, crucial perceptions for managerial decision-making were achieved.

Key points

1.

APP TEST

The project started with two applications, one for internal use and one for outside use to assess the outcome and improve the process. During the next year, the range expanded to account for four applications. Eventually, 12 applications were tested.

2.

RISK MANAGEMENT

As the project progressed, it focused on important areas, including the handling of healthcare information during the COVID-19 pandemic and testing vital revenue-generating applications. This established a significant contribution to risk management in terms of compliance and operational risks for mobile applications.

3.

CONTINUOS TESTING

we sent the test results straight to their internal risk assessment portals. As the need for more testing grew, we started doing monthly tests for crucial apps and bi-monthly tests for less important ones. This boosted the amount of test results and comparisons throughout the year.

Results

Obtain the same results.
