Global Compliance and Security

CenturyLink follows BDSG's strict cybersecurity requirements

German Federal Data Protection

The Bundesdatenschutzgesetz or BDSG, is Germany’s Federal Data Protection Act. Enacted in 1970 and later amended in 1990 and 2009 as the use of information technology grew, the need for a regulatory framework was created and expanded to protect and safe guard the use of personal data.

CenturyLink maintains a standard operating MSA and Annex clearly identifying scope, responsibilities and obligations enabling CenturyLink cloud customers remain in BDSG compliance. CenturyLink ensures the required technical and organizational measures are adhered to for protection of personal data against misuse and loss in accordance with the requirements of the BDSG.
