We’re excited to announce that the first ISO 27701 certification in Brazil has been issued… to us!
The ISO 27701 allows companies to meet the privacy and information security requirements of the General Data Protection Act (LGPD). Introduced this year, the LGPD is Brazil’s first law to provide a country-wide framework regulating the use and processing of personal data. It is very similar to the EU’s GDPR regulation. The enforcement of the LGPD goes into effect August 2021.
Data centers store sensitive information and play a crucial role in personal data protection. Trusting a data center organization to be LGPD compliant is now a necessity in Brazil.
“Achieving the ISO 27701 certification is a milestone in our history and an achievement for everyone at HostDime Brazil. In addition to our state-of-the-art physical structure, we reinforce our commitment to always offering excellence to serve our customers and impact business. ” – Filipe Mendes, CEO of HostDime Brazil.
Until now, no company in Brazil had received the ISO 27701, the international standard that helps enterprises protect sensitive data. Inmetro granted the certification after six days of examination.
