Vision-Box receives Privacy by Design certification for Orchestra platform
Vision-Box has announced that its Orchestra identity management platform has been granted Privacy by Design certification by the Privacy by Design Centre for Excellence at Canada’s Ryerson University.
The certification provides assurance that the software platform was designed with maximum privacy protection and minimal risk of a leak of users’ biographical and biometric information. Orchestra was formally assessed by Deloitte to obtain the certification from the Centre, which according to the announcement is the world’s leading authority on data privacy, before a final compliance assessment by the University.
“Through exemplary leadership, Vision-Box has proactively designed the Orchestra platform and services with privacy and data protection in mind so that a Data Processor or Data Controller can configure the solutions, with confidence, to meet or exceed regulatory expectations,” commented Dr. Ann Cavoukian, distinguished expert-in-residence at the Privacy by Design Centre for Excellence and developer of the Privacy by Design framework.
The certification keeps Vision-Box ahead of data privacy and security rules in North America and the EU, with the latter’s General Data Protection Rule (GDPR) set to come into force on May 25, 2018.
“Privacy and security – through every phase of the Identity lifecycle creation and authentication process – is crucial. It’s fundamental to establish trust between the public and the entities they interact with, electronically,” says Miguel Leitmann, Vision-Box Global CEO. “Vision-Box set out to offer the means for people to use their identity within trusted environments. Orchestra embeds all available Best Practices and relevant certifications as a robust and trusted identity management system, from end-to-end.”
Vision-Box recently introduced a new line of IoT devices for facilitating airport experiences with facial recognition.
