Key Challenges Addressed

Mobile applications are open to a number of potential vulnerabilities. From the code used to the platform the application is built upon, there are a broad array of areas that must be reviewed to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of a mobile application.

Common areas of risk are insecure data storage, communication and authentication or the addition of extraneous functionality.   

Mobile Penetration



Our data privacy specialists will work with you to review your data processing activities to ensure that all personal data is being handled in accordance with regulations.

While using the UK & EU GDPR as a benchmark, the assessment will also note all applicable nuances of global data privacy legislation applicable to your organisation. This includes other legislation and standards such as the Data Protection Act and PECR. A GDPR Gap Analysis from Bridewell can also be used as an external audit of their compliance status and act as a complement to an internal audit, if one has already been performed.
