about how Korn Ferry uses Multi-Geo Capabilities

“We now have as many people outside the US as in it, and although the GDPR doesn’t mandate a particular Geo for data residency, our clients are hypersensitive about data privacy issues, so we prefer to get in front of it. Our lifeblood includes data which is personal information about people, and with Multi-Geo, we’re able to proactively address client concerns about data residency.”

- Bryan Ackermann, Chief Information Officer, Korn Ferry
