On May 25th, the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect, and any company working with the data of an EU citizen will need to be in compliance, including consumer reporting agencies who perform background checks on EU citizens.
What IS the GDPR, what is TazWorks doing about it, and what does it mean for you? We’ve got all that information covered for you. View our webinar below to learn all the basics from Kevin Abbott, a partner at the Cadence Group, and Natalie Mirando, TazWorks director of revenue protection.
What is the GDPR?
TazWorks and the GDPR
TazWorks maintains the following certifications that we have mapped to GDPR. No deficiencies with GDPR requirements have been found:
- EI3PA (Experian Independent Third Party Assessment)
- PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
- SOC 2 (Service Organization Control).
These three certifications have strict requirements related to controls, audits, and processes about security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. They also reflect both the operational and technological safeguards we put in place around the services we provide.
Since many of the ways GDPR regulations will be applied and enforced have yet to be fully defined and will continue to evolve over the coming years, we will continue to monitor new developments on interpretations of them and our role as a processor.
To learn more about our certifications, you can attend our Accreditations and Audits session at our TazWorks User Group in May or view our RFP documentation here (must be logged in as a CRA to view).
