Latest Certification Demonstrates Continued Commitment to the Protection of Customer Data and On-Time GDPR Compliance

Oakland, CA, February 2, 2018 —CoSo Cloud LLC, a leading private cloud managed services provider for secure virtual classroom training and web conferencing, today announced it has been added to the Department of Commerce’s list of self-certified Privacy Shield participants effective January 23, 2018. With this latest certification, Privacy Shield confirms CoSo Cloud complies with its framework for the private and secure transfer of personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.

By adding Privacy Shield to a growing list of certifications that also includes SOC 2 + HITRUST certification and FedRAMP ATO, CoSo continues its strong commitment to ensuring its customers in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, financial, government and other highly regulated sectors can conduct high consequence virtual training and meetings safely and securely, knowing the CoSo Secure Private Cloud meets all regulatory compliance requirements.

“This Privacy Shield certification combines with our recent SOC 2 + HITRUST, FedRAMP ATO and other certifications to demonstrate the strictest adherence to the protection of all highly sensitive data stored in Adobe Connect meeting rooms within CoSo Cloud global data centers,” said Chris Johnson, Head of Data Center Operations, CoSo Cloud. “This is incredibly important to not only government, but to companies doing business in EMEA—especially those businesses during commerce between the U.S. and EMEA subsidiaries, partners and consumers.”

Privacy Shield was established in early 2016 when it replaced The International Safe Harbor Privacy Principles—which were developed to prevent private organizations within the European Union or United States from accidentally disclosing or losing personal information—with stronger requirements for the handling of personal data and protection of individuals. The new set of principals were developed particularly to help organizations comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which goes into effect in May of this year.
