Jumio launches e-book to help companies vet data processors for GDPR compliance
Most businesses on both side of the Atlantic are “woefully unprepared” for GDPR, and may not even realize their responsibilities to vet certain service providers for compliance, according to a blog post by Jumio.
Jumio cites a CompTIA study showing only 13 percent of U.S. companies say they are fully GDPR compliant, while in Britain only 6 out of 10 members of the Institute of Directors believe they are fully compliant. One of the poorly understand aspects of the new rule is that third-party service providers which capture or manages any personal information, must be vetted for GDPR compliance by the company that contracts them, the company says. Those third-party service providers are defined as “data processors.”
In response to this lack of clarity Jumio has published an e-book on “GDPR & Online Identity Proofing: An Inconvenient Truth” to help companies properly vet data processors.
Jumio was recently honored as an “innovator on a mission to help stop breaches” at the 2018 Infosec Awards.
