Microsoft supports international cloud privacy standard




Microsoft is the first company that supports an international standard for ensuring privacy protection for personal data in cloud services. The ISO 27018 standard should include ensuring that companies do not sell personal information to advertisers.

The ISO / IEC 27018 standard of the International Organization for Standardization provides guidelines for organizations providing cloud services. The organizations can use the guidelines to implement measures to protect personal data. External agencies can then verify if this is done correctly.

According to Microsoft, the British Standards Institute came to the conclusion that controls Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online to meet the standard and Bureau Veritas would have done the same for Microsoft Intune.

The standard provides for guarantees, according to Microsoft in the field of management of the users themselves about their personal data, transparency about what happens to the data and the security of the data. Also, companies that support the standard ensured that the data will not be used for advertisements and must inform users when governments have sought access to the data.
