Dahua Technology achieves a unique first in Global Video Surveillance Industry

Dahua Technology, a leading solution provider in the global video surveillance industry has announced that just a day before General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect from May 25, 2018, it has achieved the unique honor of becoming the first company in the global video surveillance industry to receive the certification for its IP Video Products from TÜV Rheinland. It means that its IP products are in full compliance with GDPR.

On May 24th, TÜV Rheinland held the 2018 Cyber Risk Management Forum in Shanghai. The forum, started by Mr. Lutz Frankholz, Executive Director of TÜV Rheinland Greater China, is among the highest level that is themed on information risk in China and is joined by professionals from both business and academic circles. Dahua Technology participated in the forum together with many outstanding companies from multiple industries. Mr. Zhang Junchang, Director of Cybersecurity Product Line of Dahua Technology, received certification towards IP Video Products on behalf of the company. This means the aforementioned IP products are compliance with the GDPR (EU, 2016/679) and meet the TÜV Rheinland 2PfG 2624/06.17 standard (covering IoT security and privacy protection requirements) and are world-class in information security and privacy protection.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of new laws by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union, The regulation which is said to be the “most stringent in history”will be implemented from May 25th, 2018. GDPR establishes strict, high-level, wide-scope protection standards for personal data. Wherever a company is located, as long as it processes personal data of an EU citizen during the provision of products or services, it must comply with GDPR.
Dahua Technology has successfully applied GDPR personal data protection standards and TUV Rheinland’s IoT security and privacy protection standard for products that are being shipped globally, including those that are shipped to countries and regions outside of EU. This allows Dahua Technology’s global users to enjoy surveillance products that have the same protection level as those in EU.
In and out of EU, the concerns to cybersecurity is soaring these days. Being the first in the global video surveillance industry to be certified by TÜV Rheinland demonstrates Dahua Technology’s achievements against cybersecurity, and also means that customers who use Dahua Technology’s certified IP products are able to meet the GDPR standard.
The certification procedure is closely related to the company’s whole management system. Its smooth carrying out showcased Dahua Technology’s emphasis on product quality and compliance. Dahua will relentlessly make use of its internal source as well as professional third-party partners like TÜV Rheinland to create more value to its customers and users.
