Data privacy laws continue to evolve and are impacting businesses across the world. Businesses are responsible for meeting the increasing demands of these laws and regulations to ensure the personal data of their customers and clients is safeguarded. To meet these data privacy requirements, many organizations want control of where their data is stored, known as data residency. 

We are excited to announce that Secureframe now offers data residency for European customers. With this addition, European customers have the flexibility to choose where their data is stored and processed so they can further ensure data privacy of their customers, and easily achieve and maintain compliance with privacy standards like GDPR. 

Data residency for European customers

Data privacy laws are designed to protect the personal information of your customers and clients, including their names, addresses, financial data, and more, from misuse, breaches, and unauthorized access. Rules and regulations vary depending on your location and industry. Compliance frameworks including GDPR, PCI DSS, HIPAA, and CCPA all require safeguards to protect sensitive user data. 

As the importance of data privacy continues to grow, organizations are seeking ways to ensure data protection and compliance. Our new data center allows you to have greater control over where your data is stored and processed. Our AWS London data center provides local data residency for European organizations so they can seamlessly meet the compliance requirements of GDPR and other EU data privacy laws. It also allows organizations based in the UK to keep their data inside the region their business operates. 

When you get started with Secureframe, choose where you want your data to reside: either AWS US East or AWS London. By choosing the data center location that meets your business and compliance needs you can confidently meet the requirements of data privacy frameworks and build a strong security compliance posture. 

Supporting our global customers with end-to-end compliance

We provide a full range of services for our customers in Europe to support your end-to-end compliance needs. In addition to data residency in the AWS London data center, you also have access to:

  • Dedicated European team - We have a growing European team located in the UK to support you from your first day using the Secureframe platform, through a successful audit, and after to ensure you’re maintaining a strong security compliance posture. 
  • Trusted partner program - Our trusted partner ecosystem provides the additional support and services you need to achieve your compliance goals. Our list of partners located in Europe is constantly growing so you can easily find a local Secureframe trusted partner including vCISOs, auditors, and more. 
  • More data centers (Coming soon!) - The London data center is only the first addition. In the future we will have more data centers in Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific regions to provide more data residency options around the world.
