Ensono, a hybrid IT services provider, has partnered with TRUSTe, the global data privacy management company, to support its compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the company said.
Through this partnership, TRUSTe will perform data inventory and mapping — one of the critical activities in Ensono´s GDPR compliance roadmap.
The EU GDPR is a comprehensive regulatory framework whose objective is to protect the “fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons, and in particular, their right to the protection of personal data,” according to the European Council. It outlines the requirements that organizations who process the personal data of EU individuals must apply in order to safeguard such data, regardless of the organization´s location.
Ensono´s partnership with TRUSTe further strengthens its global data protection program, demonstrating Ensono´s commitment to safeguarding sensitive information and assuring conformity with European standards on data protection.
Ensono launched its GDPR compliance initiative in March 2017, and adopted a phased approach that positions it to align with the GDPR prior to the May 25, 2018 effective date.
For business leaders managing lots of complexity or disrupting the status quo, Ensono delivers complete Hybrid IT solutions and governance, from cloud to mainframe, tailored to each client´s journey. With over 1,000 associates across North America and Europe, it is headquartered in greater Chicago, IL.
