IBM was one of the first EU Cloud CoC supporters as they adhered services to the Code before it was approved by the European Data Protection Authorities. Today, we are pleased to announce that IBM has officially received the level 2 compliance mark, thus reaching a new milestone. By adhering to the EU Cloud CoC, companies like IBM can effectively, consistently, and transparently exhibit their dedication to upholding GDPR compliance.
Reacting to the EU Cloud CoC adherence, Christina Montgomery, Vice President and Chief Privacy & Trust Officer for IBM, stated
Our ongoing mission at IBM is to maintain the trust that our European business customers have placed in us for more than 100 years by building open, transparent, and explainable privacy practices into everything we do. Achieving the EU Cloud Code of Conduct’s level 2 compliance mark is tangible evidence of IBM’s steadfast commitment to the GDPR and to maintaining the highest ethical standards across our cloud services.”
