PayScale Now Has Privacy Shield Certification

We know data security is a top priority for you. It’s a top priority for us, too. To advance our mission of helping organizations succeed via modern compensation, PayScale customers must have confidence in the security of our products, and know that we’re continuously updating and refining our security measures. To that end, we leverage industry-standard security solutions and best practices, as well as technologies and certifications that go beyond the basics.

PayScale adheres to the ISO/IEC 27002 family of security controls and works with a certified public accounting firm yearly to achieve a SOC 2 certification*. PayScale products are hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). We have completed a robust penetration report with a leading third-party security vendor. We also conduct vulnerability testing against OWASP and SANS top threats during development of all products and features.

And now, we’ve added the Privacy Shield Framework to the mix.

Need a refresher? From “The EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the European Commission and Swiss Administration, respectively, to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.”

We’re proud to offer this additional layer of compliance to our customers, and will continue to pursue the latest security advancements, always.

*As of Nov. 2017, PayScale MarketPay has achieved SOC 2 Type II certification. PayScale Insight Lab and PayScale Team will pursue SOC 2 certifications in the near future. Please contact your PayScale representative for more information.
