Workday Is First Company to Attain New Asia-Pacific Privacy Certification

With emerging data protection regulations introducing new complexities to sharing data across borders, Workday is proud to announce that it is the first company to be certified by TrustArc to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) System. This certification further demonstrates Workday’s strong privacy protections for customer data, and our commitment to accountability in our global privacy program.

The PRP System implements the nine privacy principles set forth in the APEC Privacy Framework and is intended to strengthen privacy protections and trust across the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, the certification aims to minimize barriers to the cross-border flow of information.

To obtain PRP certification, Workday completed a comprehensive review with TrustArc, an APEC-recognized accountability agent, with the Federal Trade Commission as the enforcement authority. As part of this review, Workday confirmed that our data privacy policies and practices comply with the PRP System’s accountability standards for data protection. We also demonstrated to TrustArc the strong data governance measures we have in place for protecting our customers’ personal data.

The PRP certification adds to our demonstrated commitment to privacy alongside our APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules certification, and our EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework certification (renewed for the second time in August). At Workday, we take this and our other certifications seriously, and are pleased to offer further proof of the strong privacy and security protections we provide for customer data.
