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 expected to be replaced soon by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to national laws like the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs).
