The Chinese handset maker Xiaomi has passed the external test on conformance with EU strict data privacy law. Xiaomi agreed with TRUSTe LLC, a division of TrustArc, to organize an independent audit of its data protection and security.
The company secures its place of the first-ever Chinese firm to get a certification from TRUSTe. The company has been going through the annual audit by the Subsidiary of TrustArc since 2018 when the EU regulations act was enacted.
According to Xiaomi’s official statement, the company’s ethics of wielding customer personal data is enough to meet the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Xiaomi dealt with all 40 GDPR Validation requirements.
The TRUSTe review abstract states, “The measures described in the GDPR Validation Assessment were suitably designed to provide reasonable assurance” Cui Baoqiu, Xiaomi Vice President and Chairman of Xiaomi Security and Privacy Committee, said, “Xiaomi strives to uphold the highest standards of user privacy policies and practices, particularly for its users in the EU.” I’m happy to see that Xiaomi has completed TRUSTe’s annual audit of GDPR privacy compliance, which demonstrates our commitment to privacy protection”, he further added.
The Chinese mobile manufacturer moves to spotlight the audit of data protection adherence elapsed in the middle of Augmented privacy inspection in China’s homeland. The Chinese government is not strange to go by new law verdict over the years.
Last year in Beijing, the authority passed the compacted privacy regulations, which came into effect to limitations personal collecting by multi tech firms like Xiaomi, Samsung, Apple. To make further process, the officials deployed numerous effective measures to take down breach of the laws and regulations initiated by the authority also rolled out acts on cybersecurity and algorithm. While connecting all the possible dots, it appears Xiaomi hasn’t formed all of these for privacy’s sake, but the cause of new regulations laws bestowed on it.
