French Authorities Give Sole Approval to GMAT Exam to Collect Biometric Data to Advance Security

plying with international data privacy laws," said David A. Wilson, president and CEO of GMAC. "We want to ensure the highest level of security to protect the interests of schools and of honest test takers."

Wilson noted that leading business schools around the world have relied upon the GMAT as a proven predictor of a candidate's academic success for five decades. "The CNIL's action in granting approval for the collection of biometric data only to the GMAT exam reflects the importance of the high priority we place on vigilant security."

In 2005, GMAC notified the CNIL of other security measures under the Data Protection Act to protect the GMAT exam against fraud, including audio-visual recording in the test room and photos of candidates. However, France and some other countries did not accept the collection of fingerprints, which was also a part of GMAT exam security measures. GMAC then began a search for alternatives to fingerprinting that would comply with international data privacy laws. The CNIL received a letter of support for the value of the palm vein technology in guaranteeing the security of the test from the HEC School of Management in Paris.

GMAC will now implement PalmSecure and file requests for its use with other European countries. Portugal has already authorized it. GMAC expects to use the PalmSecure technology in all test centers by the close of 2009.
