Microsoft Translator has been GDPR complaint for some time now, and according to  today’s announcement, the service is now compliant with three other certifications. According to the tech giant, their service is now certified for the ISO, HIPAA, and SOC compliance standards.

For those who don’t know what all of these fancy abbreviations mean, Microsoft has taken the necessary steps to make sure that the service complies with each of the three certification standards. To be complaint with the US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the service needs to be able to reliably handle healthcare related information responsibly so that the data is safe from falling into the wrong hands.

On top of this, the service is also compliant with the Service Organization Controls framework standard which hosts a number of safeguards for user data, especially when it comes to that relating to financial information. The International Organization for Standardization certifications are also adhered by the service, as follows:

  • ISO 27001 Information Security Management Standards
  • ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems Standards
  • 27018:2014 Code of Practice for Protecting Personal Data in the Cloud
  • 20000-1:2011: Information Technology Service Management
  • ISO 27017:2015: Code of Practice for Information Security Controls

The company cites its certifications as its commitment to security and user privacy. With tall three of them in mind, those that might have been skeptical to use the Microsoft Translator service in the past should now be able to rest easy knowing their data is secured by multiple standards.
