RustProof Labs and the GDPR

Last Updated: 4/25/2018; First Published: 4/25/2018

Passed in 2016, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant legislative change in European data protection laws in decades. The GDPR, which becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018, seeks to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU and serve as a single piece of legislation for all of the EU.

We support the GDPR and will ensure RustProof Labs' services comply with its ordinances by May 2018. Not only is it an important step in protecting the fundamental right of privacy for European citizens, it also raises the bar for data protection, security and compliance in the industry.

Who does GDPR apply to?

The GDPR applies to all organizations operating in the EU or processing "personal data" of EU residents. It defines personal data as any information relating to an identified or identified natural person.

How has RustProof Labs been preparing for GDPR?

RustProof Labs is working hard to prepare for the GDPR. All RustProof Labs Services will comply with the GDPR when it becomes enforceable in May 2018 and we are working closely with customers to help them prepare. Measures to achieve this include:

  • Continuing to invest in our security infrastructure
  • Making sure we have the appropriate contractual terms in place
  • Continuing to ensure we follow industry best practices, such as use of encryption (in-motion and at-rest), data minimization, and defense in depth

We'll also continue to monitor the guidance around GDPR compliance from privacy-related regulatory bodies, and will adjust our plans accordingly if it changes. We'll provide you with regular updates along the way so that you're always current.
