About the US-EU Safe Harbor Compliance Standard
The U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework is a policy of guidelines that U.S. companies must adhere to regarding the protection of personal data. As more U.S.-based companies operate in European markets, ensuring Safe Harbor compliance is critical to avoiding interruptions in business dealings or facing prosecution by EU member state authorities.
Concerto Cloud: Your Safe Harbor in the Marketplace
Concerto Cloud Services is certified for Safe Harbor, and our “premium comes standard” offerings encompass the processes and data security needed to protect our customers operating in European markets.
However, on October 6, 2015, the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg ruled the Safe Harbor Agreement null
and void, citing shortcomings in the policies designed to protect citizen’s private information because it only bound companies, not U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies, to comply.
While the European Commission is continuing negotiations on a "safer Safe Harbor" agreement with U.S. authorities, rest assured that Concerto Cloud Services applies security best practices, many of which go beyond Safe Harbor policies, to ensure that our European customers’ data is as secure and private as possible.
