Xiaomi accelerates its efforts for privacy
Protecting users’ data and privacy has always been one of Xiaomi’s top priorities. Accordingly, Xiaomi launched the Security and Privacy Committee in 2014. Became the first Chinese company to be certified by TrustArc in 2016. In 2018, the European Union adopted the General Data Protection Regulation. In 2019, it received ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27018 certificates regarding security and privacy practices. It also released the first version of MIUI security and privacy whitepaper.
During the events held this year, employees and visitors were given information about security and privacy for a month. Information on how to protect personal information through interactive demos was also included.
Xiaomi also shared two important documents this month, MIUI Privacy and Xiaomi IoT Privacy White Paper. The documents, which summarize Xiaomi’s privacy policies and practices in MIUI and IoT products, explain what kind of user data is collected and how this data is used and protected.
The documents also contain the privacy policies of all the apps that come with MIUI and commonly used loT products. These documents can be accessed from Xiaomi’s trust center at https://trust.mi.com/.
Richard Watson, Lead Partner in Cybersecurity Risk Management at EY APAC, said they expect consumer data to be collected and stored securely. It was noted that the most important factors when sharing personal data with an organization include secure data collection and storage processes (63 percent), control over which data is shared (57%) and trust (51 percent).
Transparency, accountability, user control, security and compliance are among Xiaomi’s privacy protection principles. Xiaomi complies with local laws in all markets in which it operates. The company will continue to produce safe and reliable products around the world to help everyone lead a better life with innovative technologies.
