Centrilogic Achieves EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Certification
TORONTO, ON – December 12, 2017 – Centrilogic, a global provider of managed IT solutions, announces today that it has completed the certification process for the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission. The Privacy Shield framework reflects the new requirements for foreign exchanges of personal data and information for commercial purposes, replacing the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor, for which Centrilogic was also certified.
The certification verifies that Centrilogic complies with the framework’s data protection requirements when transferring personal data and information from the European Union to the United States. The EU’s laws for protecting personal data online are among the most stringent worldwide. To join the Privacy Shield Framework, Centrilogic self-certified with the U.S. Department of Commerce and has publicly committed to comply with the Framework’s requirements. The Privacy Shield certification further enhances the company’s global and cross-border security standards, enabling Centrilogic to fulfill the information security requirements of customers whose data transfers across geopolitical boundaries. Centrilogic has a long history of adhering to strict security and privacy standards, and currently holds PCI DSS 3.2, ISO 27001 & 9001, and SOC 2 Type II certifications.
