San Francisco - October 5, 2016 – GoodData, a provider of technology and expertise that enables organizations to commercialize and monetize their data, has received certification approval from the United States Department of Commerce for the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework program, the successor to the EU US Safe Harbor Program. Combined with GoodData’s top-tier data center in Europe, this certification demonstrates the company's ability to process and protect the personal data of EU citizens on behalf of its customers in a way that meets strict regulatory requirements.
"To continue our mission for global growth in the enterprise market and assure best-in-class security and privacy for our customers, it was imperative we certify as soon as possible," said Tomas Honzak, director, security and compliance at GoodData.
