Altair Global Proudly Achieves Data Privacy Framework Certification

Altair Global has a strong commitment to protecting the data privacy of our clients and customers, and we are dedicated to following the best compliance, risk and security, data process management, and global information practices. 

To further this aim, Altair has sought and achieved full compliance with all aspects of the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (DPF), including the UK extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, and the Swiss-U.S. DPF. This is an exciting milestone in our commitment to data privacy. This certification allows Altair access to reliable mechanisms for data transfers between the United States, European Union, United Kingdom, and Switzerland while ensuring data protection consistent with EU, UK, and Swiss law.

Secure International Business and Data Transfers

Compliance with the DPF program, which is administered by the International Trade Administration within the U.S. Department of Commerce, can facilitate international business dealings, especially when data is transferred across borders. It assures foreign partners and regulators of Altair’s commitment to data privacy.

Operational Efficiency and Risk Management

Achieving compliance often requires organizations to streamline data handling and processing procedures.

Complementary to SOC 2 Type 2

In addition, Altair is compliant with the SOC 2 Type 2 audit reports, further showcasing our commitment to data security and privacy. Such compliance demonstrates our organization has implemented effective security controls and practices to protect customer data. Furthermore, it proves Altair’s compliance with standards such as GDPR, by helping us to better align our processes with industry best practices and regulatory requirements.

Overall, SOC 2 Type 2 compliance provides assurance to clients, customers, and stakeholders alike that their information is handled securely through ongoing monitoring and yearly assessment of security controls via an independent third-party auditing firm.
