Business Keeper AG proved that its IT-based service BKMS® Compliance System complies with EU data protection law.
At the core of this service is the BKMS® System (v3.1), which already received the EuroPriSe seal before several times (cf. below). The BKMS® System is a whistleblowing system, technically designed as a web based service (software as a service – SaaS).
In addition, BKMS® Compliance System also consists of several other modules / extensions, which are covered by this (re)certification for the first time:
– BKMS® VoiceIntake and BKMS® Translation as extensions to BKMS® System, v. 3.1,
– BKMS® Case Management, v.3.1,
– BKMS® Third Party, v.1 and
– BKMS® Business Approvals, v.1
Business Keeper AG was initially awarded the European Privacy Seal for BKMS® System in 2013 and successfully renewed it in 2015 and 2017.
The 2020 re-evaluation was conducted by EuroPriSe Technical Expert Dr. Irene Karper and EuroPriSe Legal Expert Alisha Gühr. It showed that the BKMS® Compliance System meets all applicable EuroPriSe requirements.
Sebastian Meissner, Head of the EuroPriSe Certification Authority: “We have been convinced once again that the BKMS® System ensures the safety and confidentiality of personal data by means of an extraordinarily high level of data security and highly differentiated access rights. This solution truly stands out in terms of data protection by design, since it is designed in a manner that even Business Keeper itself cannot access clear text data, but only the clients (users).“
