“The decision taken by the European Court of Justice is a clear message being sent out to the businesses that Safe Harbour can no longer be relied on. In today’s world where digital transformation affects every industry, it is of importance that individuals trust that their data is being adequately handled and protected. Safe Harbour is 15 years old and needed to be reassessed especially in view of the recent surveillance and data breaches which have brought suspicion on to it in the public eye. We believe that if we work with data, we must be accountable for data entrusted with us at a global level, and that it goes through getting adapted certification such as the Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) which BMC has just received. The IT industry must embrace the change and go for a higher standard of protection. This will reassure consumers and ultimately customers, which will benefit the whole digital economy.”
