Defiant, dba Wordfence, is now listed on the Privacy Shield certification list participating in both the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks. The purpose of these frameworks is to allow for the lawful transfer of personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.
Two years ago when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was enacted in Europe, we painstakingly worked to ensure that Wordfence was in full compliance with these new regulations governing data protection and privacy for those located in the European Economic Area (EEA).
Defiant’s inclusion in the Privacy Shield Framework underscores our commitment to data protection standards aligned with those that meet EU legal standards for data acquisition and processing.
Our legal, operations, and compliance teams worked diligently over the last few years not only to ensure we are in compliance with GDPR, but also certified with Privacy Shield. This is no small task. Our team spent countless hours invested in the process to ensure full compliance. Meeting the requirements for any organization requires an analysis of all business processes as well as the establishment of new ones.
