Privacy, security, and GDPR in Atlassian cloud

Our European customers face some of the most stringent regulatory, privacy, and security requirements. Join us to learn the fundamentals of how we handle user data, our response to the recent Schrems II ruling, and how features like data residency and BYOK encryption (coming soon) can help you meet regulatory requirements.

As more and more organizations across the globe look to adopt cloud solutions to future proof their business, the security and compliance of those solutions continue to be critical - particularly for European customers. In order to meet the requirements set by GDPR or other industry regulations, you need to ensure your data is secure. We understand that and have built our cloud products, privacy policy, and security practices with those requirements in mind.

Join leaders across Atlassian in security and compliance, Kelly, Jodie, and RJ, as they walk through the security and privacy of our cloud products and how we help you stay compliant.
