Kensium Completes Certification of EU-US & Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks
With new regulations in effect and to provide adequate protection for all Personal Data regarding clients and business partners received in the US, Kensium volunteered to self-certify to the EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss–U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks administered by the US Department of Commerce ("Privacy Shield") and publicly committed to comply with the framework’s requirements.
Kensium completed a rigorous process to comply with the numerous privacy policies set out in the new regulations for self-certification.
The EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission and Swiss Administration, respectively, 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 and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. The European Commission deemed the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework adequate to enable data transfers from the European Union. In 2017, the Swiss Government announced the approval of the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as a valid legal mechanism to comply with Swiss requirements when transferring personal data from Switzerland to the United States. The Privacy Shield program, which is administered by the International Trade Administration (ITA) within the U.S. Department of Commerce, enables U.S.-based organizations to join one or both of the Privacy Shield Frameworks in order to benefit from the compliance determinations.
