Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that it was awarded certification for adherence to the principles of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation's (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system. These principles encourage the development of appropriate information privacy protections, and are aimed at promoting electronic commerce throughout the Asia Pacific region. "We have undertaken a thorough review to verify that our data privacy management practices meet each of the APEC CPBR requirements," said Adam Rogers, chief technology officer at Ultimate. "Our ability to comply with the APEC privacy framework demonstrates our commitment to strong data privacy practices and contributes to increased customer, business, and regulator trust around the globe." The APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system was developed by participating APEC economies to build trust in cross border flows of personal information. The APEC CBPR system requires participating businesses to develop and implement data privacy policies consistent with the APEC Privacy Framework. These policies and practices must be assessed as compliant with the minimum program requirements of the APEC CBPR system and be enforceable by law. Ultimate Software has been awarded certification for meeting APEC CBPR privacy rules from TRUSTe, one of the APEC's approved Accountability Agents.
