A1 Data Privacy

The A1 Group consistently adheres to current guidelines and legislation, and uses data only when there is a legal basis for doing so and where required in the course of its work. In addition to the statutory requirements in the respective countries, all companies must also adhere to the information security standards created for this purpose and any other country-specific data security guidelines. At A1 in Austria, for example, comprehensive certificates such as ISO 27001, ISAE 3402 and ECO Datacenter 3.0 attest to these high security standards. The Data Privacy department, which reports directly to the Management Board, is in charge of compliance with statutory and internal data protection regulations at A1 in Austria.

The respective companies of the A1 Group also cooperate on a regular basis with authorities in the interest of continuously improving cyber security. For example, A1 in Austria was involved in the sector risk analysis conducted by Rundfunk- und Telekom-Regulierungsbehörde (RTR), which aims to analyze risks inherent in the telecommunications industry and use the findings as a basis to develop recommendations for network and service operators and public authorities. A1’s CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) shares relevant security information within the national CERT association ATC (Austrian Trust Circle), security expertise is shared within the A1 Group itself and at expert conferences.
