Dahua Technology has become GDPR compliant and received the certification for its IP video products from TÜV Rheinland just a day before the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect i.e., 25 May 2018. It means that its IP products are in full compliance with GDPR. Dahua is one of the first companies on the globe which has achieved this certificate.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of new law by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union. It establishes strict, high-level, wide-scope protection standards for personal data.
Wherever a company is located, as long as it processes personal data of an EU citizen during the provision of products or services, it must comply with GDPR.
TÜV Rheinland, an internationally renowned independent third-party testing, inspection and certification organization, held Cyber Risk Management Forum 2018 in Shanghai on 24 May 2018. The forum, started by Lutz Frankholz, Executive Director of TÜV Rheinland Greater China, is among the highest level that is themed on information risk in China and is joined by professionals from both business and academic circles.
Dahua Technology participated in the forum together with many outstanding companies from multiple industries. They successfully applied for GDPR personal data protection standards and TUV Rheinland’s IoT security and privacy protection standard for products that are being shipped globally, including those that are shipped to countries and regions outside of EU. Zhang Junchang, Director of Cybersecurity Product Line of Dahua Technology, received certification towards IP video products on behalf of the company.
This means the Dahua IP products are in compliance with the GDPR (EU, 2016/679) and meet the TÜV Rheinland 2PfG 2624/06.17 standard (covering IoT security and privacy protection requirements) which are world-class in information security and privacy protection. This allows Dahua Technology’s global users to enjoy surveillance products that have the same protection level as those in EU. This also means that customers who use Dahua Technology’s certified IP products are able to meet the GDPR standard.
The certification procedure is closely related to the company’s whole management system. Its smooth carrying out showcased Dahua Technology’s emphasis on product quality and compliance. Dahua will relentlessly make use of its internal source as well as professional third-party partners like TÜV Rheinland to create more value to its customers and users.
Dahua has also shared a white paper named ‘How Can Dahua Products Help Users Comply With GDPR.’
