The technology industry is today facing calls to improve standards of information security, by seeking accreditation from the European Union to improve data protection and privacy standards.

Providers are urging companies to seek ratification of Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs), which have been developed by the European Union Article 29 Working Party to allow multinational corporations and international exchange of personal data within EU Data Protection Law.

BMC, a global leader in software solutions for IT, has today announced it has achieved certification to secure EU accreditation for its Data Privacy Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) as both a controller and processor of data.

Jonathan Perez the global privacy officer at BMC welcomed the accreditation, saying “Safeguarding the privacy and security of critical information is a top priority for businesses in the data driven-economy,”

“This accreditation sends a clear signal to our customers and partners that we take our responsibility of securely managing their data seriously and have EU-level approved standards to do so.”
