Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
Continuing a 40 year legacy of exemplary customer service and commitment in property management software, MRI Software announces certification of compliance with the Safe Harbor Framework developed by the United States Department of Commerce and the European Commission and Switzerland. Completing this self-certifying Safe Harbor compliance on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, MRI has reconfirmed their commitment to client data security by formalizing rigorous privacy principles for processing personal information.
“Investing in Safe Harbor certification is an easy decision for a company dedicated to the service and security of its customers. We are not only committed to supporting the evolving needs of our European Union clients, but also place the highest importance on security for all the personal information under our care,” stated David Post, CEO of MRI Software, LLC.
In 1998, the EU enacted a directive on data protection that would prohibit the transfer of personal data to non-EU nations (including the U.S.) that do not meet the EU standards for protection. Therefore, companies, like MRI Software, who are certified under the Safe Harbor Framework, are allowed to receive personal data from EU countries.
The Safe Harbor certification represents MRI’s commitment to providing the highest quality product, service, and customer experience for the global market. Along with the certification, MRI has also increased its global presence by opening new offices and a data center in strategic locations worldwide. “We welcome MRI’s Safe Harbor self-certification as it confirms MRI’s commitment to data protection and meeting the needs of its European Union clients,” stated James Power, Head of Business Information Systems - SEGRO plc.
The Safe Harbor certification facilitates business transactions without interruption when dealing with the EU. The aim of this certification program is to bridge the difference between the data protection practices of the EU with those of the U.S.
