The Royal Netherlands Golf Federation (NGF) selected Computest to perform a vulnerability assessment for its platforms and app, in which golfers’ personal data are stored. Thanks to the collaboration with Computest, the NGF can be sure that the security of golfers’ personal data is guaranteed within the platforms.
Privacy of members’ personal data
The NGF represents the interests of golfers and golf clubs, among other things via the websites GOLF.nl, golfraak.nl, joostLuiten.com and the app GOLF.nl. The GOLF.nl website and app were developed so that players could digitally submit their scorecards in order to update their so-called handicaps. The aim of the app is also to encourage golfers to play more often and improve their game. Part of the functionality is therefore a community: golfers can become friends, see who is playing golf where on each other's timelines (the app supports course recognition via GPS) and view rankings.
In order to be sure that golfers’ personal data were secure within these platforms and that malicious hackers could not obtain access to them, the NGF asked Computest to perform a vulnerability assessment. In this client case, you can read more about that and what Erik Vrieling, project manager and product owner, has to say about working with Computest.
