EU Cloud Code of Conduct Level 3
Webex – comprising Webex Meetings, Webex Messaging, and Webex Calling – is the first collaboration and conferencing solution to achieve Level 3 adherence with the EU Cloud Code of Conduct (EU Cloud CoC).
The EU Cloud CoC is a comprehensive, transnationally verifiable assurance framework for cloud service providers to demonstrate EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance, including transparency, accountability, data minimization, data breach notification, and lawful data processing. In addition, the EU Cloud CoC provides significant protections for individuals whose personal data is stored and processed in the cloud by setting clear expectations on how their personal data will be processed, for what purposes, and by whom. This commitment to transparency and accountability empowers individuals and enhances their control over their personal data.
Swiss Digital Trust Label
Webex, the cloud collaboration and contact center platform sold by Bucher + Suter, has been awarded the Swiss Digital Trust Label. This certification recognizes digital services that meet Switzerland’s highest data protection and privacy standards. The Swiss Digital Trust Label is awarded by the Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS), which Switzerland recognizes as an accreditation body for the certification of management systems.
This blog post explains that achieving this certification demonstrates Webex’s commitment to protecting customer data and ensuring the privacy and security of its users. Compliance with strict Swiss data protection regulations, as well as the implementation of end-to-end encryption and other security measures, were critical factors in obtaining the Swiss Digital Trust Label.
Webex is the first video conferencing, collaboration, and contact cennter platform to receive this certification in Switzerland, underscoring the importance of trust and transparency in today’s digital landscape.
