Regular application testing is an important part of an organisation's IT practices. Before any new software application or upgrade to an existing application can be used, it must be rigorously tested in a test environment.

In many cases this work is carried out by contractors or outsourced to a third party. These individuals have unfettered access to sensitive personally identifiable data such as credit card numbers and bank account details.

In a recent survey, 52% of businesses said that they outsourced application testing to specialist companies, with 49% sharing live data.*

The legal risks associated with a data breach as a result of this activity are high and penalties severe, yet awareness of this hidden threat is low.

Barlow Lyde & Gilbert LLP, in association with IBM, are hosting a seminar giving the legal perspective on data privacy issues arising from the practice of outsourcing application testing and development.
