    3. Trusted Site Privacy

Since 2002, the TÜViT evaluation body for data protection has been evaluating IT procedures, organizations and their parts (data protection management systems) – and since 2006 with the Trusted Site Privacy certification mark. The data privacy assessment is based on a comprehensive and legally-compliant test approach. Thanks to our one-stop-shop approach, we ensure integrated security.


Our approach

TÜViT has developed a certification procedure which combines both evaluation of the data protection level and security of IT systems. The basis of evaluation includes, inter alia, the quid! criteria which are used to assess quality in company data protection. They were developed during a two-year research project with over 80 experts and still represent the core of the requirements of the Trusted Site Privacy criteria catalog. TÜViT has the sole rights to carry out certifications on the basis of these criteria.
