Until the deadline in May, additional extensions for the Modul are planned. They include risk management for data privacy and the data privacy impact assessment.
Implement Modernized IT Baseline Protection
verinice 1.15 is the first version that implements the Modernized IT Baseline Protection according to the new BSI standards 200-1, 200-2 and 200-3.
More updates for verinice are on the horizon this year. These are intended to integrate the still missing content from the BSI. verinice Product Owner Michael Flürenbrock: "Users should be able to work with the latest version of the new Baseline Protection in verinice in a timely manner." In particular, risk management and the migration from the previous IT Baseline Protection Catalog to the IT Baseline Protection Compendium are among the expected BSI updates.
verinice users will receive the new versions as part of their ongoing subscriptions.
