TrustArc lands Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) certification

TrustArc, a data privacy management company, today has expanded its offerings to include the new Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) Certification.

The new PRP Certification enables businesses to demonstrate compliance with comprehensive global standards.

TrustArc claims to be first company authorised as an Accountability Agent to offer the new certification, which enables businesses who operate as data processors to demonstrate their high commitment to privacy and data protection standards recognised across the 21 member APEC economic region.

The APEC Privacy Framework, which includes both the new Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) certification for data processors, and the Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) certification for data controllers, were developed by governments and regulators within APEC.

More economies have joined to system, making it easier for businesses to move data across borders, while following recognised privacy principles and operating standards. TrustArc is said it is the only authorised US provider of these two international privacy certifications.

“Businesses who operate in Asia-Pacific and the Americas need a way to demonstrate compliance to customers and partners – and the APEC Privacy Framework provides a mechanism to do this,” said Chris Babel, CEO of TrustArc.

“The new PRP certification, along with the existing CBPR certification, enables us to support the entire ecosystem of companies relying on the use of personal data to conduct business within the Asia-Pacific region. We are excited to be the first approved provider in the U.S. and to further expand our industry leading offering of privacy compliance solutions.”

Earlier this year, TrustArc expanded its platform to meet the global demand for privacy technology solutions. The TrustArc Privacy Platform includes solutions to manage data mapping, risk assessments, website tracker scanning and consent management. It is designed to support virtually every privacy use case and provides a proven and compelling addition to existing channel partner solution portfolios.
