The data-driven world around us is experiencing an information revolution as technologists create, gather, and analyze enormous amounts of data about people, their locations, goods, or services. Important concepts and principles need to be rapidly incorporated into our already established data management standards. As of May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which aims to solve the key concerns, is in effect throughout the European Union.
In order to keep up with the needs of the digital age, the GDPR replaces the several national data protection laws already in place with a uniform set of rules. The new regulation aims to provide people with stronger, more uniform rights to access and control their data by integrating data protection laws and policies across the EU.

To ensure a consistent level of data protection and security throughout our organization, we have established a data privacy team to develop and carry out a plan for complying with the new data protection Regulation. To prevent the modification, unauthorized access, disclosure, or erasure of personal data, we have multiple layers of security measures in place along with strict information security policies and procedures. A GDPR training curriculum has been added to our employee development program, which is customized to our core business processes and delivered through our induction and annual training programs.
