Digisquares® Governance, Risk and Compliance helps you comply with the GDPR
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is all about protecting its citizens’ and residents’ data and privacy. The GDPR outlines global privacy requirements governing how to manage and protect personal data while respecting individual choice regardless of where data is sent, processed, or stored.
Digisquares believes that the GDPR is essential for strengthening data protection laws and individual privacy rights across the European Union. That's why we have announced new service delivery developments that will allow our customers to request to have their EU-hosted data always handled exclusively within the EU.
Due to our principled approach to privacy, security, and compliance, we have one of the most extensive compliance portfolios in the industry. We comply with these key standards: ISO 27001, ISO/IEC 27018, SSAE SOC 1 Type 2 and SOC 2 Type, FedRAMP, and others.
As you prepare to comply with the GDPR, here is what else you can expect from us:
Because compliance is a shared responsibility, we are committed to helping you comply with the GDPR. Requirements such as greater data access and erasure rules, privacy by design, and data breach notification processes may mean changes for your organisation. Therefore, it is important to understand your obligations related to the GDPR regardless of where your organisation resides.
We have recently updated our data processing addendum (DPA) in compliance with the requirements set forth in the GDPR. Our DPA also gives our customers contractual assurances that personal data can be lawfully transferred from the European Economic Area to the Digisquares services. For more information about our DPA, please review the FAQs.
