Pitney Bowes is committed to protecting the privacy of personal and sensitive information. We continue to update and enhance our processes and systems to protect client, employee and company data. We build privacy into the design of our products, give clients choices about the information they share, and are transparent about how their data is used. We also adhere to applicable law and regulations regarding client, partner and employee personal information moving across geographical and jurisdictional borders including certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield program. Our goal is to foster innovation and trust in the evolving digital economy by minimizing privacy risks, meeting our regulatory and legal obligations and practicing data stewardship.
We require all Pitney Bowes employees and partners to follow our comprehensive policies for the protection of privacy and adherence to data protection law and regulation. Our Chief Data Protection Officer manages our global data privacy programs and works closely with all the operating business units, as well as Information Technology, Engineering, and Internal Audit. Senior executives comprise our Privacy and Security Governance Committee, which oversees these efforts. We also review privacy risks and mitigation plans with a senior management Risk Steering Committee and the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors also reviews our overall efforts regarding cybersecurity on a regular basis.
