FICO Joins Safe Harbor List of Companies that Meet European Data Protection Rules

16. Dezember 2011

LONDON—December 15, 2011—FICO (NYSE:FICO), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced that it has joined the “Safe Harbor” list of U.S. companies that agree to comply with European privacy rules. Companies that add their name to the Safe Harbor list adhere to the safe harbor framework developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce in coordination with the European Commission.

The Safe Harbor provides guidance for U.S. organizations on how to provide adequate protection for personal data from Europe, as required by the European Union's Directive on Data Protection. Companies on the list must not only agree to follow the Directive's rules, they must be in compliance already.

For the past 10 years, FICO has had so-called “model clauses” language in its contracts with European Union companies, in which it vouchsafes that it is bound by European privacy laws. The company’s strict privacy policies are also stated online.

"By joining the Safe Harbor list, we are reassuring every European business that we take privacy as seriously as they do," said Mike Gordon, vice president and managing director of FICO in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. "While we are not a data provider, our solutions rely on analyzing sensitive customer data in order to develop powerful predictive analytics. FICO can engage our global analytics team on client projects, and give our European clients greater access to hosted solutions, while giving our clients confidence that their data is protected under the world's strictest rules."

The full list of US-based companies on the Safe Harbor list is available at https://safeharbor.export.gov/list.aspx. FICO is listed under its full corporate name, Fair Isaac Corporation, and was certified to Safe Harbor effective October 18, 2011.

FICO (NYSE:FICO), formerly known as Fair Isaac, delivers superior predictive analytics solutions that drive smarter decisions. The company's groundbreaking use of mathematics to predict consumer behavior has transformed entire industries and revolutionized the way risk is managed and products are marketed. FICO's innovative solutions include the industry-leading solutions for measuring credit risk, managing credit accounts, identifying and minimizing the impact of fraud, and customizing consumer offers with pinpoint accuracy. Most of the world's top banks, as well as leading insurers, retailers, pharmaceutical companies and government agencies, rely on FICO solutions to accelerate growth, control risk, boost profits and meet regulatory and competitive demands.
