HANGZHOU, China, May 24, 2018 – Just one day before the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect, Dahua Technology became the first company in the global video surveillance industry to receive the certification towards its IP Video Products from TÜV Rheinland, meaning the aforementioned IP products are in 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 the Cybersecurity Product Line at Dahua Technology, received certification towards IP Video Products on behalf of the company. This means the aforementioned IP products are in 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.
Dahua Technology Extends Personal Data Protection Features Required under GDPR to Global Users
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), 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,“ most stringent in history”, will be implemented tomorrow, that is 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, a leading solution provider in the global video surveillance industry, has successfully applied GDPR personal data protection standards and TUV Rheinland’s IoT security and privacy protection standards towards products that are shipping globally, including those shipping 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 the EU.
Significance of the Certification

Being the first in the global video surveillance industry to be certified by TÜV Rheinland demonstrates Dahua Technology’s achievements toward cybersecurity, and also means that customers who use Dahua Technology’s certified IP products are able to meet the GDPR standard.

Dahua will relentlessly make use of its internal resources as well as professional third party partners like TÜV Rheinland to create more value for its customers and users.
