EuroPrivacy is a privacy certification scheme designed to address emerging technologies, such as Internet of Things deployments, data analytics, and Smart Cities, with international experts in this domain.

It benefits from Horizon 2020 European research projects on privacy and cybersecurity, such as Privacy Flag (privacy certification), ANASTACIA (privacy and security seal), SAINT (cybersecurity), Create-IoT (Trusted IoT label) and U4IoT.

The latter is in charge of promoting personal data protection in the five European Large Scale Pilots (LSPs) on the Internet of Things, financed by the European Commission.

The LSPs encompass domains such as smart cities, wearables, connected vehicles, smart agriculture, and smart homes. Altogether, they gather over 150 European companies and research centers.

EuroPrivacy gathers the required expertise to assess and validate technical measures for personal data protection, such as:

Encryption and strong authentication

Securing networks and data transmissions

Servers security

Personal data dissociation, pseudonomyzation and anonymization

Role-based access control

Real time intrusion detection tools

Prior informed consent mechanisms

Data ownership and end user data control
