U.S.-based First Data began its effort to win approval for its binding corporate rules (BCRs) in 2007, back when the process was young and still evolving. This month, the UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) officially recognized the multinational payment solutions company's BCRs for data processors. Now able to boast that it's been approved for both processors and controllers, First Data is also the first company to have done so under the purview of the ICO. First Data CPO John Atkins, Chief Compliance Officer Carmen Menendez-Puerto and Chief Control Officer Cindy Armine-Klein discuss the process with Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, in this exclusive for The Privacy Advisor. Thinking about going for BCRs at your company? Today from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., Jannine Aston of Verizon and Sian Rudgard, CIPP/E, of Hogan Lovells will lead “Are You Ready for BCR? A Practical Guide To Find Out If You Have What It Takes.”
