idgard: Certification in the highest TCDP protection class

CERTIFIED SECURITY

TCDP Certification

Independent and reliable certifications are necessary in order to obtain a statement about the quality and characteristics of a cloud service and all downstream processes such as security, infrastructure, availability and more. A TCDP certificate makes it much easier for companies to fulfill their control obligations in the context of commissioned data processing. What’s more, it proves that the necessary security is in place.

TCDP

Basis of the TCDP:

This data protection certificate is based on the Trusted Cloud Data Protection Profile developed in 2015 – a catalog of requirements based on the recognized ISO/IEC 27018 standard, which expands the ISO/IEC 27001 and 27002 standards to include specific requirements in the area of cloud and data protection. TCDP also takes into account the standards of ISO/IEC 27017 and fulfills all data protection requirements for commissioned processing in the cloud.

DSGVO-Compliant

Significance in the context of the EU General Data Protection Regulation:

TCDP is a certification procedure that can prove compliance with the requirements of GDPR for data processing.

“Following the development of a corresponding test standard and certification procedure, certifications in accordance with TCDP are to be converted into certificates in accordance with a GDPR standard for cloud services, as provided for in the rules of procedure for certifications in accordance with TCDP.”

Trust Seal

In addition to certificates, there are also so-called trust seals. These are seals of approval that confirm that a website or application is trustworthy and meets certain quality or security standards. The trust seals, which are usually awarded by an independent party, can cover various aspects – whether data security, data protection, quality assurance or compliance with certain industry standards. However, the seals are often only based on a self-declaration – a more detailed examination by the independent company often does not take place. In this respect, they differ from the certificates.
