PROVIDENCE – Virgin Pulse, the global health and wellness technology company with offices in the city, has earned compliance with the APEC Framework for the Virgin Pulse platform, the company announced.
The APEC Framework, published by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, protects privacy within economies for personal information transferred between consumers, businesses and governments. The framework is the basis of the APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules System, or CBPR.
According to Virgin Pulse, the certifications have been earned by only a few organizations internationally, including Apple, Cisco and HP. The APEC CBPR system was developed by APEC’s 21 member economies, including the United States, Mexico and Australia.
“Member privacy is at the center of our strategic priorities,” said David Osborne, CEO of Virgin Pulse. “Securing and protecting client and member data has never been more important than it is today.”
