DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ensono™, a leading hybrid IT solutions provider based in the U.S., is now certified to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. This accomplishment strengthens Ensono's global data protection program, demonstrating its commitment to safeguarding sensitive information and assuring conformity with international standards on data protection.
The U.S. Department of Commerce approved Ensono's certification to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, adding Ensono to a list of about 1,500 Privacy Shield certified organizations. The Framework, which was designed and approved by both the European Commission and the United States, provides organizations on both sides of the Atlantic a mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States.
"Ensono's Privacy Shield certification reflects its unwavering delivery of its commitment to clients and stakeholders across the globe," said Jeff VonDeylen, CEO of Ensono. "This recognition aligns with our organizational values and enhances our global data protection standards, which are imperative to our long-term growth and success."
The Privacy Shield Framework offers a set of robust and enforceable protections for personal data. The Framework provides transparency around participating companies' use of personal data and increases cooperation with EU data protection authorities (DPAs) to collectively safeguard the privacy rights of EU individuals.
"Ensono's adoption of the EU-US Privacy Shield principles provides further assurance to our European clients and global partners of our dedication to regulatory compliance and safeguarding sensitive information," said Ensono Chief Legal Officer Peter Bazil. "This will remain an important priority and focus for the company as it grows and evolves over time."
