Washington, D.C., associate Yodi Hailemariam was interviewed by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, or (ISC)2, about the U.S. signing on to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation’s Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) program.

Yodi explained that the PRP will probably not be more onerous than what companies are already doing to comply with other data privacy frameworks, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.

Yodi continued, “[The PRP is] an illustration of the global trend towards heightened regulation and focus on protecting private citizens’ data…I think we’re seeing a very clear overall trend towards taking personal data very seriously and companies taking appropriate steps to do so.”
