Statement on data protection review
Belgium, 13 November 2013
SWIFT is cooperating with the Belgian and Dutch Data Protection Authorities in an appraisal (NL version - FR version) following recent press speculation. There is no evidence at this time to suggest that there has been any form of confidentiality breach. SWIFT takes these matters extremely seriously and looks forward to confirming the positive outcome of this DPA review.
SWIFT is a member-owned cooperative that provides the communications platform, products and services to connect more than 10,000 banking organisations, securities institutions and corporate customers in 212 countries and territories.
