Our multi-layered approach to security begins with the physical security of your data, and is why we deploy our private cloud in Tier IV Data Centers that enforce the most stringent security policies available of any data center option. Tier IV is exceptionally rigorous, with requirements such as:

SpecPage is ISO 27001 certified and is compliant with outsourcing regulations.
CLOUD Act: Why Swiss data protection and Swiss based servers are the safest option
Since the Patriot Act of 2001, US companies have been required to disclose data at the request of the US authorities. With the CLOUD Act of 2018, the US authorities now also seek access to foreign servers. For companies that need to comply with the E.U. GDPR (The General Data Protection Regulation), the new US legislation raises additional compliance issues. The CLOUD Act, which requires US companies to provide access to data even if the local foreign laws prohibit it, creates an international conflict of applicable law.
Special attention in respect of the U.S. Cloud Act must be paid to a due diligence of the organizational setup for global electronic communication/computing services, especially when operating in multiple jurisdictions. Where critical data, including confidential information and personal data of individuals, is stored in the cloud, state-of-the-art security measures must be applied, including encryption of transmission channels and data repositories. Last not least service provider agreements should contain default language about the obligation of the service provider to
- only provide customers’ data to the law enforcement authorities subject to a valid legal request, i.e. a warrant, which is a court order based on evidence to a judge that reliable information indicates a probable reason for the requested search; and
- to redirect prosecutors to directly approach the service recipient for the data, rather than going through the cloud provider, if practical and if doing so will not compromise the investigation; and
- notify the service recipient about the law enforcement authorities request to preserve, backup, or disclose the contents, if doing so will not compromise the investigation (i.e. no gag order has been issued).
