By now, I’m sure that you’ve heard of the General Data Protection Regulation, more commonly known as GDPR. This regulation from the EU is overhauling the requirements for businesses who collect, process and transfer the personal data of EU citizens.
Ahead of the upcoming May 25th deadline, we’re excited to announce that TokBox is GDPR compliant.
Quick refresher: What is GDPR and why does it matter?
GDPR is designed to strengthen data protection around personal information for EU citizens, to remove the barrier of mistrust which can hamper the development of innovative online services. TokBox is committed to being GDPR compliant to make it easy for our customers to access the European market.
The journey towards compliance
We’ve been preparing for GDPR for a long time, in order to be able to work with customers and have everything in place for the May 25th 2018 deadline.
As a cross-department effort led by our Information Security and Compliance teams, our journey has involved almost all TokBox departments. Engineering, Product, Marketing, Customer Success, Legal and Finance have all contributed, making sure that no stone was left unturned on the road to compliance.
Following a thorough audit of our website and all documentation, a Data Impact Assessment was produced which allowed us to identify and address any areas which were impacted by the GDPR rules.
During this time we also worked closely with customers to understand what they would need to be confident working with us as a GDPR-compliant supplier. We’ve collected information in our new GDPR whitepaper, which is a direct result of the feedback we’ve received from these customers: information which is clear, easy to understand and above all which will help our customers avoid duplication of efforts.
