PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Teleperformance (Paris:TEP), a leading global group in digitally integrated business services, today announced that it has achieved global certification to ISO/IEC 27701 Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) from BSI, the business improvement and standards company.
ISO/IEC 27701 is an extension of existing global data privacy standards that help companies ensure compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California’s California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and other data privacy requirements. The new certification covers Teleperformance operations in North America, Continental Europe, Middle East, and Africa (CEMEA), and Asia-Pacific (APAC).
With rogue threat actors and computer hackers finding new ways to breach corporate security systems, achieving ISO/IEC 27701 compliance is a critical milestone for Teleperformance. Leveraging PIMS helps demonstrate to customers and partners that Teleperformance emphasizes privacy and has implemented effective safeguards to help keep information safe and secure.
“Data security has become a concern for all organizations today due to the numerous incidents that are happening both at government and private sector levels,” said Teleperformance Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Julien. “This is the reason why Teleperformance has massively invested in people, process and tools to strengthen our clients’ data integrity. We are obviously very pleased to receive this certification; still we will never take security for granted and will remain vigilant as data security is and will remain the number one everyday challenge in our digital world.”
