AuditFile, Inc., developer of award-winning cloud-based audit automation has been accepted by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) as an active participant in the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework. The self-certification is part of the Company’s continuing commitment to meet the highest standards for privacy and security.
The Privacy Shield Framework gives companies a means to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the EU to the US. The certification signifies compliance with the Framework’s stronger data protection obligations, formal redress for individuals, and rigorous controls.
“Privacy and security are fundamental attributes of any cloud-based solution, so pledging our commitment to meeting the highest standards is an understatement,” said Steven Bong, Founder and CEO of AuditFile. “Our goal was to make AuditFile the most secure way to perform audits. Participation in programs like the Privacy Shield Framework offer assurance to our customers and their clients that we continue to strengthen our infrastructure as technology and standards advance.“
To meet the specific needs of customers that service clients across industries and geographic locations, AuditFile participates in a number of compliance programs and assures that its platform is compliant or enables compliance with guidelines set forth by regulatory bodies, including AICPA Peer Review Program – QCM Review, EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), HIPAA, International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and FedRAMP.
