Show HN: Securely collect sensitive data from any Netlify site
20 points by mahmoudimus 44 days ago | hide | past | web | favorite
We are big fans of Netlify [1] (it powers our website and blog!) and we wanted to scratch our own itch to comply with GDPR, as well as various upcoming data security regulations [3]. So we, Very Good Security [2], just released an add-on that lets you securely collect sensitive data (e.g. payments, PII, SSNs, identification, etc.) via web forms on Netlify.

With the new add-on, Netlify customers are shielded from data liability, breach risk and the compliance issues that come with holding sensitive data. So you can inherit PCI compliance from VGS (a level 1 service provider) and can fast-track other compliances like SOC2, HIPAA, etc.

You can read more about our add-on for Netlify on VGS’ blog:
