How Cryptshare helps with compliance
While businesses and organisations exchange an ever increasing amount of files electronically there are also more and more data privacy laws, rules, and regulations that try to stay on top of the technological development in order to keep customers' data safe. Regulations range from international treaties such as the European EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/E which is replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to national laws like the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs). But there are many more industry and even company specific laws like the US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) making sure that patients’ data are handled in a secure way or the regulations of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in the real estate business.
