OneNeck IT achieves EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework compliance

The framework is defined by the U.S. Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Commission

This week, OneNeck IT Solutions announced that it has demonstrated compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. The parameters, set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Commission, include requirements around the collection, use and retention of personal data received from the European Union.

OpenPGP is one of the most widely used encryption standards. The Privacy Shield Framework was formerly known as Safe Harbor and is an updated set of robust and enforceable protections for the personal data of EU individuals. The Framework also provides transparency regarding how participating companies use personal data, strong U.S. government oversight and increased co-operation with EU data protection authorities.

OneNeck says that this move guarantees superior services to its European customers and employees. It also provides OneNeck with continued access to European markets to provide cloud computing services.

Dave Flynn, SVP of Operations and Engineering at OneNeck said:

When we host data for customers, we start with two simple principles. First, we use, disclose and otherwise process personal data only to provide the services requested by our customers.

Second, we maintain robust security to protect it against unauthorized acquisition or use. By demonstrating compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, our European customers can rest-assured that OneNeck makes the safety of their personal data a mission-critical priority.
