November 2023 by Marc Jacob
Abacus Group announced its inclusion on the Data Privacy Framework (DPF) participants’ list to reflect its ongoing commitment to client data privacy and protection.
Compliance with the Data Privacy Framework (DPF), which is administered by the International US Department of Commerce, confirms Abacus Group’s ability to facilitate safe and reliable personal data transfers to the United States from the European Union (EU), United Kingdom (UK) and Switzerland, whilst also ensuring consistent data protection under EU, UK and Swiss law.
The policy protects all personal data for current, former and prospective clients, partners, principals and employees, and third parties. Recognition under the framework is also a testament to Abacus Group taking the required measures to protect personal information against loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. The company incorporates steps to protect personal information and the risks involved in its processing, alongside best practises in the industry for security and data protection.
Abacus will renew its certification annually and will conduct an in-house verification process to ensure continued compliance.
