TokBox announces GDPR compliance

TokBox, the live video, real-time communications (RTC) company, has announced that the company is now compliant with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the company said.

The scope of TokBox´s GDPR compliance includes the OpenTok Cloud platform and the Customer Relationship Management system in which personal data is processed and stored.

TokBox followed guidelines from The International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) that certify privacy professionals who advocate for Fair Information Privacy Principles originating from the Privacy Act of 1974 and enforced by the US Federal Trade Commission.

To implement these principles for GDPR, TokBox leveraged ISACA, a professional association of certified IT auditors, which has published “Implementing the General Data Protection Regulation,” and a Data Protection Impact Analysis worksheet.

TokBox, a Telefónica company, develops and operates the OpenTok Platform, making it fast and easy to add live video communications into online and mobile websites, apps and services. The scalable, customizable platform gives users the creative freedom to develop any video interaction, from one-to-one chats to large-scale broadcasts.
