Wordfence and GDPR: How The Defiant Team Are Preparing For GDPR

We want to send out an update on the new data protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), going into effect soon and how Defiant is getting ready for it.

This new European law goes into effect on May 25, 2018. It is a new set of rules designed to give European citizens more control over their personal data. Defiant is actively preparing with new website changes and updates to the Wordfence plugin.

Additional changes will include updated privacy policies and terms of use. We are applying for the Privacy Shield certification program for both EU-US and Swiss-US and will soon have available a Data Processing Agreement for our EU customers who need one.

These updates will be made before the deadline. We will send out another notification with a detailed blog post when we have completed preparing for the new privacy regulations. You will begin to see these changes and updates emerge starting next week.

The team at Defiant, makers of Wordfence, care deeply about our customer privacy and data protection. This extends to our European customers and the rest of the globe. To this end, we have been working diligently with our internal team and with outside experts to understand the implications of the GDPR, to perform a comprehensive internal audit and to get our software, systems and processes compliant with the GDPR.

As always I welcome your questions and comments below.

Regards,

Mark Maunder – Defiant Founder & CEO.
