What is Compliance?

Compliance is the adherence to rules and policies set by an industry forum or consortium. Compliance is central to the business of cybersecurity and the role of being a Certificate Authority (CA).

At DigiCert, we take compliance very seriously. As the world's leading high-assurance TLS/SSL certificate and PKI provider we are invested in our compliance and audit staffing to ensure we have the right team members in place in each region of our global organization. We also undergo 25 different audits annually to ensure our systems and operations comply with standards from groups including WebTrust, ETSI, ISO and other bodies.

Compliance standards we adhere to may pertain to:

  • Certification Authority/Browser (CA/B) Forum and the policies and procedures they set for website security
  • General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR), the European Union's regulation for data privacy and security
  • Know Your Customer (KYC) or Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations in finance and banking

DigiCert also adheres to policies and procedures set forth by the following organizations: ASC X9, IETF, NIST and NCCoE.
