Orange, CALIF. (May 18, 2018) - 360Civic, an Orange County based company that provides web development and technology services to public sector entities, has launched a new service to help businesses understand and satisfy their compliance responsibilities with GDPR.
General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. Any company that stores or processes personal information about EU citizens within EU states must comply with GDPR, even if they do not have a business presence within the EU.
“Thousands of companies in the United States engage in online transactions with EU residents every day, so it is imperative that they are aware of GDPR requirements, and that they implement the data protection policies and solutions that will keep them in compliance with the law,” said Nicole Fellouris, Chief Information Security Officer for 360Civic.
Fellouris, who originally began working with 360Civic on a retainer basis, has now joined the company full-time as CISO. She has more than two decades of cyber security experience in both the public and private sector, and is a graduate of both the FBI and ATF Citizen’s Academies and the FBI’s Infrastructure Liaison Officer (ILO) program, specializing in cyber counter intelligence operations.
For public sector entities uncertain about their compliance status, 360Civic will answer questions about GDPR, conduct a thorough review of every aspect of their website and online presence, and meet with the company to review the results.
“These days there is so much more to running a website than design and content,” said Ron Zayas, founder of 360Civic. “Our GDPR service, as with our ADA compliance services, ransomware protection, security, hosting and privacy services, is designed to deliver a comprehensive suite of online support. We help our clients optimize their online presence in a way that meets all national and international regulations, while still excelling in its main purpose – turning visitors into customers.”
