Over the last few decades, data privacy has emerged as an extremely important dimension of human rights. Data privacy regulations are being strengthened worldwide to give respect to the choices made by people for their data and privacy. Privacy by design has always been the norm at Infosys. We process personal data ensuring that privacy aspects are incorporated at the design stage itself.
Strengthening Personal Information Management System (PIMS)
We make every effort to protect the personal information that comes under our purview with our PIMS. Our PIMS is the convergence of international best practices, client-prescribed requirements and applicable data privacy regulations across geographies. We are among the first few organizations globally, to have our PIMS certified with accreditation to the ISO 27701 privacy information management standard.
