First European privacy seal awarded
Author: JT Smith
EuroPriSe today awards the first European Privacy Seal for ICT products and IT-based services. The seal guarantees compliance with the demanding EU laws and regulations on data security and privacy. EuroPriSe is funded by the European Commission's eTEN programme with 1.2 million Euro and implemented by a consortium of nine organisations. Under the scheme, IT products and IT-based services are audited in order to see if they can be certified as compliant with European regulations on privacy and data security.
