TrustArc GDPR Validation

In advance of an official GDPR certification, TrustArc GDPR Validation provides an independent way to demonstrate GDPR compliance to customers and partners.

GDPR Articles 40-43 contain provisions outlining GDPR certification programs and codes of conduct that may be established in the future, but companies are seeking efficient, independent ways to benchmark and report on their GDPR compliance efforts now.

Many companies are pursuing external GDPR validation – 2019 research shows that 63% of companies plan to secure a validation from an independent firm.1

The TrustArc GDPR Validation enables companies to demonstrate their GDPR compliance efforts and status, using intelligent technology-powered assessments, TrustArc managed services and an independent GDPR compliance validation.
