TrustWeek 2023: OneTrust, the market-defining leader for trust intelligence, announces that it has been selected as an official EuroprivacyTM Technology partner to help organizations in the European Union (EU) demonstrate compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and streamline certification with the Europrivacy scheme.
“OneTrust was built on the philosophy that privacy and data protection are critical to building trust and driving business value,” said Linda Thielova, Data Protection Officer (DPO) at OneTrust. “Achieving the Europrivacy certification and demonstrating GDPR compliance helps build trust with people, customers, partners, stakeholders, and regulators. As a Europrivacy partner, OneTrust will help organizations streamline certification and drive market differentiation by aligning with one of the industry’s most advanced and rigorous certification schemes for data protection.”
Europrivacy is the first and only certification scheme whose criteria have been officially approved by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) to serve as the European Data Protection Seal. Its criteria are formally recognized by all EU and EEA jurisdictions for assessing and certifying compliance with the GDPR. Based on ISO/IEC 17065 and Article 42 of GDPR, Europrivacy enables businesses to check and document the GDPR compliance of their data processing thanks to officially recognized criteria. It enables them to reduce their legal and financial risks, and where relevant, to certify and value their compliance.
“Europrivacy is supported by a highly selective ecosystem of qualified partners to support data controllers and processors interested in reducing risks, building trust, and valuing their GDPR compliance,” said Sébastien Ziegler, Chairman of Europrivacy International Board of Experts. “We are delighted to welcome OneTrust as an official Europrivacy partner. It will offer DPOs a seamless and user-friendly experience from GDPR compliance to certification."
