Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 31, 2014

One Safe Place Media Corp, one of the country’s leading offsite data protection and Online Business Backup companies, has successfully completed the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework certification process from the United States Department of Commerce. The U.S.-EU Safe Harbor program is a voluntary certification and ensures the company is complying with the international data privacy guidelines established by the European Union in 1998.

“Companies choose One Safe Place Media Corp to help protect their mission-critical data and systems, and the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor certification demonstrates our commitment to the highest level of global security and data protection standards,” said Scott Scheffe, chief technology officer of One Safe Place. “Many of our customers have global locations and transfer data daily from international locations. The Safe Harbor framework provides a means to satisfy the European Union's legal requirement that adequate data protections be afforded to personal information transferred to the United States.”

The U.S-EU Safe Harbor Framework was developed to bridge the gap between the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission’s policies on data protection and privacy. It enables U.S. organizations to comply with the 1998 European Commission’s data protection direction, and confirms that safe harbor certified companies provide “adequate” privacy protection under EU legislation.
