Since its beginnings in 1999, Cartika has offered platforms, infrastructure, and software as a service as a trusted partner to its clients. Now in 2018, we are becoming ever moreaware of the importance of keeping personal data safe. In Canada, Cartika has upheld the requirements as laid out in PIPEDA since it’s passing into effect in 2004. PIPEDA recognizes not only the importance of protecting your personal data, but also the need of organizations such as Cartika to responsibly collect and disclose this information.
What does compliance with these policies mean for you?
- Cartika will always ask your consent to collect, use, or disclose your information
- Your information will only ever be collected through fair, lawful means
- Information on how your information is being used, and to whom it has been disclosed will always be available
- Cartika will provide personal information policies that are clear and available
- Cartika will delete or destroy personal information that is no longer needed
Regulations such as the Sarbanes Oxley Act (SOX) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) already exist to safeguard financial information, but newer policies such as PIPEDA in Canada, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union emphasize responsible handling of all personal data to maintain your digital security.
Cartika strives to comply fully with regulations such as SOX and FISMA to keep your financial information secure. Compliance management with these policies is available with all Cartika-managed service levels for your ease of mind. In addition, European Union-based clients can easily opt for compliance management with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), aiming to give more control to citizens and residents over their personal data. The new regulation comes replaces the EU’s Data Protection Directive, which was put into force in 1995. However, the internet has evolved into a hub for business, social interaction, and storage of data on a much larger scale than ever before – and it’s only growing faster.

While the immense growth of the internet from a novelty to a worldwide market is creating new opportunities every day, it also opens doors for breaches in security. Other IaaS providers may not offer compliance with these strict regulations, and achieving these compliance requirements often falls onto the organization to layer on top of your IaaS purchased infrastructure. Cartika offers you both the pure IaaS model to manage your own compliance, and a full suite of bundled Managed Services to handle all of your compliance requirements.
