AUSTIN, TEXAS, December 11, 2017 – Mitratech, the leading provider of legal, compliance, and operational risk software solutions, announced today that that it has received certification approval from the U.S. Department of Commerce for the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework program, which succeeds its U.S.-EU and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework Certification.
“Obtaining the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Certification was both a critical and natural achievement for our company, as we continually seek to offer and provide products and solutions that meet the most stringent data security and privacy protection standards,” said Kristoph Gustovich, Vice President of Hosting, Security and Compliance and Data Privacy Officer for Mitratech. “Mitratech customers can rest assured that the privacy and confidentiality of their data is of the utmost importance to our company, both now and in the future.”
The U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission co-developed the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.
Privacy Shield Certification must be renewed on an annual basis, to ensure companies continue to comply with the latest security and privacy standards. More information about the Privacy Shield can be found at: https://www.privacyshield.gov.
