Face-pixellating module is first video surveillance product to be declared GDPR-ready by EuroPriSe
KiwiVision Privacy Protector KiwiVision Privacy Protector, which pixellates the faces of persons captured in video surveillance footage in real time, has been declared GDPR ready . Developed by KiwiSecurity, the product was re-certified with the European Privacy Seal by EuroPriSe, which has been recalibrated to certify readiness for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force in the UK and across the EU from 25 May 2018. This makes it the first and only video surveillance product to receive this redefined seal of approval.
The European Privacy Seal is awarded to IT-based products that excel in privacy protection. Privacy Protector passed newly introduced tests in order to win re-certification. The EuroPriSe Authority, which is based in Bonn, Germany, created new tests and expanded criteria to make sure products comply with requirements mandated by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). KiwiVision Privacy Protector, a video anonymization module, is integrated into Genetec Security Center, Milestone XProtect and Cisco VSOM, among other video management systems. embedded content We are pleased to re-certify KiwiVision Privacy Protector, which is now an integrated feature in Genetec Security Center, for the fourth consecutive term by the European Privacy Seal certification authority, said Sebastian Meissner, head of the EuroPriSe Certification Authority. Additionally, this re-certification comes with the special distinction that the Privacy Protector software is GDPR-ready , meeting the highest certifiable compliance with the European Union (EU) privacy standards. To gain re-certification and the accolade of GDPR readiness, products will now have their source code tested for vulnerabilities that could compromise privacy protection (known as destructive anonymisation). Genetec takes privacy, authorization, encryption, and secure data archiving very seriously in our commitment to help our customers Protect the Everyday , said Cyrille Becker, general manager for Europe at Genetec. We are pleased that KiwiVision Privacy Protector has once again received the EuroPriSe re-certification, which will extend an even greater level of confidence and trust for Genetec customers.
The EuroPriSe seal is valid for two years.
