Certification

Home / Certification

Data security and data protection are the top priority for TeamDrive.

 
 
It was our aim to develop software that, with the help of the latest encryption technologies and a sophisticated network architecture, safeguards the confidentiality of all data and only allows access to authorized persons.

The results of our work have found an application in the TeamDrive system and in particular in the TeamDrive software. In order to verify our achievements, we commissioned accredited experts to audit the TeamDrive solution. The certifications that they provided were then assessed by the Independent Regional Centre for Data Protection of Schleswig-Holstein
(Unabhängiges Landeszentrum für Datenschutz Schleswig-Holstein (ULD)). In June 2016 the TeamDrive software (TeamDrive version 4) was awarded the Data Protection Seal of Privacy for its consistent and successful implementation of all aspects of data protection and data security. This was a re-certification for another two years.
(Test certificate number 2-3/2005, valid until June, 2nd, 2018).

It is generally a matter of the compliance of the product with the regulations on data protection and data security. Particular value is attached to the issues of data avoidance and minimization, data security and traceability and the safeguarding of the rights of those concerned. The ULD makes a catalogue of requirements for IT products available that covers both legal and technical aspects. This is revised at regular intervals.
The certificates are issued by the experts and expert test centres accredited by the Independent Regional Centre for Data Protection of Schleswig-Holstein (ULD). Accreditation by the ULD depends on providing proof of the necessary expertise, reliability and independence. The ULD keeps a public list of its accredited experts and test centres. You will find application forms and the list on our homepage.
The length of the process depends on a combination of the time it takes for the experts to certify the product and for the ULD to approve that certification. The main factor that affects the certification period is the complexity of the product, although the quality of the documentation and the user instruction manual also play a part. In practice, it normally takes a few months. If flaws are identified in the certification process, rectifying them can prolong the certification period. The same applies to the approval process, which is determined by the complexity of the product and the quality and completeness of the certification. Here, too, a period of a few months is to be expected in practice, especially if there are questions for the auditors or manufacturers and the experts are required to provide greater detail in their certificate.
