Layered Tech Commitment to Privacy Continues with Safe Harbor Recertification

With the prevalence of cybercrime, governments have enacted laws; organizations have established standards; and companies such as Layered Tech have implemented considerable administrative, technical, and physical controls on information security to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.

In a continuing commitment to serve the security and privacy needs of its clients, Layered Tech has recently recertified to the U.S.-E.U. Safe Harbor Framework and expanded its certification to include the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework. It also updated provisions in its online privacy policy to reflect its adherence to these frameworks.

As a data security leader offering PCI-DSS, HIPAA- and FISMA-compliant solutions, Layered Tech has participated in these Safe Harbor frameworks since November 2007 to protect client privacy as mandated by the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles, and to provide assurance that Layered Tech obtains, maintains, and processes personal data in a manner consistent with client expectations of privacy.

The U.S. Department of Commerce, in coordination with the European Commission and the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner of Switzerland, developed these frameworks to provide guidance for U.S. organizations on how to provide adequate protection for personal data from the EU and Switzerland as required by the European Union’s Directive on Data Protection and the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection respectively. In effect, these frameworks bring the methods of privacy governance in the U.S. into accord with that of the E.U. and Switzerland.

For Layered Tech, protection of all data, personal or otherwise, is part and parcel to its brand reputation and continued success in the security and compliance sector of internet cloud and hosting solutions.
