Blue Sky eLearn Certified for EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework

Latest Certification Highlights Blue Sky’s Commitment to Data Privacy and Protection

SAN DIEGO, CA – Blue Sky eLearn, provider of Path™, an award-winning eLearning platform, is pleased to announce it has received certification approval from the United States Department of Commerce for the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework program, the successor to EU-U.S. Safe Harbor Program.

The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission 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 to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.

“Blue Sky eLearn is dedicated to protecting our clients and their users’ data and privacy,” said Philip G. Forte, Blue Sky eLearn’s President. “As a technology company that serves customers around the globe, we want to provide peace of mind that Blue Sky is handling their user data with the utmost care and responsibility, and has the processes and procedures in place to make sure that happens.”

Blue Sky eLearn’s Path suite of products delivers online courses and content globally. Path clients are able to maximize their online learning through a robust, full-service system that enables them to manage and distribute content easily and efficiently to audiences everywhere.

The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework certification arrives before the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018, which requires even higher standards of data privacy and governance. Through adhering to the Privacy Shield Principles, Blue Sky eLearn is taking necessary steps to help its clients work toward GDPR compliance.
