CyberShift Certified as European Union Safe Harbor Compliant

Workforce, Expense Management Customers Assured Solutions Meet Strict European Privacy Regulations

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - August 12, 2009) - CyberShift, a global provider of workforce management and expense management software and services, today announced it has been certified as compliant with the European Union (EU) Safe Harbor standards. Developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and approved by the European Commission, the Safe Harbor framework establishes a privacy protection standard for transferring personal data between the member states of the EU and the United States. By becoming certified under the EU Safe Harbor provisions, CyberShift has demonstrated compliance with the Safe Harbor privacy principles accepted by all 27 member states of the European Union.

The European Commission's Directive on Data Protection prohibits the transfer of personal data to non-European Union nations that do not meet the European standards of privacy protection. The United States and the European Union take differing approaches to privacy and, as a result, the directive can significantly impede the ability of U.S. companies to engage in many trans-Atlantic transactions.

"Privacy has always been a paramount concern for CyberShift. By becoming EU Safe Harbor compliant, our customers can rely on our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions conforming to the strict privacy regulations of the European Union. By taking the steps necessary to address complex international privacy regulations, CyberShift makes it easier for customers to gain the benefits of implementing our solutions across their entire organization, no matter where they are located, allowing them to focus on their core businesses," commented Gene Wronko, CyberShift's vice president, IT and On Demand Services.

"As CyberShift's solutions continue to gain acceptance in many countries outside of North America, we have made investing in a truly global platform for our SaaS business a priority to make sure we were meeting the high standards of our customers. EU Safe Harbor certification is an important measurement of the success of our efforts," noted Robert E. Farina, CyberShift's CEO.
