First Privacy+ Certification Awarded in India

February 7, 2019

PRISM International is proud to announce Ninestars Information Technologies has been awarded Privacy+ Certification™, making it the first India-based firm to do so.

Commenting on the accomplishment, i-SIGMA CEO Bob Johnson said, “In achieving Privacy + Certification, Ninestars has demonstrated extraordinary operational excellence and joins an elite global network of information management firms.”

Johnson added, “Ninestars recognizes that
consumers benefit by the third-party validation of service provider compliance. Under the current climate for data protection, customers’ liability is too great to be validating vendor qualifications without rigorous, credible, third-party verification.”

Regarding the achievement of Privacy+
Certification and becoming the first Indian company to do so, the Managing Director of Ninestars, Gokul Krishnan, said, “Ninestars is proud to bring Privacy+ Certification to India. Protecting the data of our partners is our top priority and achieving this certificate solidifies our commitment to protecting the physical storage and handling of hard-copy records of our clients. With this certificate, we want our
stakeholders around the world to both understand and embrace, our commitment to security. We see it as a service to our customers. As a result, they are assured we are meeting our compliance standards.”

According to i-SIGMA co-President Christopher
Jones, announcements like this bode well for the future of the program. “This and other similar announcements show there is a real need for Privacy+ Certification around the world.” He added, “There is no doubt that need will lead to wider acceptance globally.”

The announcement follows on the heels of the
first Privacy+ Certification in Saudi Arabialast August.
