YOUNGSTOWN, OH / ACCESSWIRE / May 30, 2024 / PeopleKeys, a global leader in behavioral analysis and personality assessment solutions, is excited to announce that it has recently been certified under the innovative Data Privacy Framework (DPF). This certification underscores PeopleKeys’ ongoing commitment to data privacy and protection, ensuring the secure transfer of personal data from the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK) to the United States (US).

PeopleKeys also secured its certification under the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework. Both certifications cover non-HR data, highlighting the company’s comprehensive approach to managing personal information. This certification not only embodies our commitment to upholding best-in-class data and privacy standards, but also empowers us to engage in cross-border data transfers with the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK), fostering a seamless global operation. Additionally, The Institute for Motivational Living is included as a covered entity under these certifications.

Benefits of DPF Certification

PeopleKeys’ certification in the Data Privacy Framework signifies a substantial stride toward enhanced data protection. Here’s how the framework fortifies consumer data safeguards:

  1. Enhanced Privacy Standards: By conforming to the elevated privacy standards dictated by the framework, we assure our customers that their data is handled with the utmost integrity and security. This alignment fosters transparency and builds a robust foundation of trust between us and our partners.
  2. Secure International Data Transfers: The framework facilitates secure cross-border data transfers between the US, EU, and UK, ensuring that the data remains protected irrespective of where it’s processed. This is pivotal in today’s global business landscape, where data often traverses across borders.
  3. Continual Compliance Monitoring: The Data Privacy Framework mandates regular audits and monitoring to ensure ongoing compliance with its standards. This continuous oversight guarantees that our data protection measures remain cutting-edge and effective.
  4. Staying Ahead in a Complex Regulatory Landscape: With the regulatory landscape evolving rapidly, it’s imperative for PeopleKeys to demonstrate proactive efforts in compliance. This certification underscores our commitment to meeting and exceeding industry standards.
  5. Reassurance for International Partners: Particularly for our partners in the EU and UK, DPF certification provides reassurance that PeopleKeys adheres to the latest data privacy standards, aligning with regulatory requirements.

Commitment to Data Privacy

By adhering to the principles of the Data Privacy Framework, PeopleKeys ensures that personal data transferred from the EU and UK is handled with the highest standards of privacy and security. The framework emphasizes key principles such as transparency, data integrity, purpose limitation, security, and accountability.

Reinforcing International Trust

“We have always strived for data protection, and this certification reflects our dedication to upholding stringent data protection standards,” said Bradley Smith, Ph.D., President of PeopleKeys. “For example, PeopleKeys was the first ISO 27001 DISC provider.
