Organisations established in the EU and processing personal data of EU-based individuals are, in almost all cases, required to comply with the GDPR from May 25 2018. The GDPR updated and harmonised the framework for processing personal data in the European Union, and brought with it new obligations for organisations and new rights for individuals. Mediablanket has many years’ experience earning our users’ trust.
We are certified compliant with the most widely-accepted security and privacy standards and regulations, such as ISO 27001/2, ISO27018/17 and SOC 2.
