Kryon Becomes First Leading RPA Vendor to Earn International Data Privacy Management Certification
NEW YORK, March 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Kryon®, international innovator in user-friendly enterprise automation, robotic process automation (RPA) and process discovery, announced today that it has received ISO 27701 certification, a privacy extension that provides a framework for compliance with EU regulations. GDPR provides guidelines, California CCPA and other global data protection standards. Certification to this rigorous framework ensures that automation projects created by Kryon Full-Cycle Automation follow best security practices every time software bots process sensitive corporate or personal data.
Since bots are often programmed in the context of process automation projects to access sensitive systems and information, they can become the target of a cyberattack in which an attacker can exploit the access to steal data or to gain unauthorized access to systems and applications . ISO 27701, sometimes referred to as PIMS (Privacy Information Management System), provides a foundation for Personal Data Controllers (PII) and PII processors to protect customers’ personal data. Consumer privacy is an ongoing concern in the age of constant data breaches, and ISO 27701 certification is a way to mitigate the risk of compliance violations and help meet legal data management requirements.
For Kryon customers, this means improved data integrity and confidentiality, as well as practical guidelines for setting up, implementing, maintaining, and continuously improving a PIMS that conforms to international standards. It is speculated that ISO 27701 could become the first widely adopted data protection standard, bringing Kryon Full-Cycle Automation customers to the fore in meeting future standards.
“More and more healthcare, financial services, insurance, call center and technology companies are creating RPA projects that require access to large amounts of personal data that need to be protected,” said Shay Antebi, Kryon CTO. “By becoming the first major RPA vendor to achieve ISO 27701 certification, Kryon demonstrates our increased commitment to privacy compliance. This is a way to assure our customers that data protection has top priority and forms the basis for the secure processing and storage of their most valuable asset, the personal data of customers, employees and partners. “
