GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is the new EU regulation for protection of personal data and the greatest change in data protection regulation over the past 20 years. It will replace the 95/46/EC Directive for protection of personal data and will strengthen the rights that EU citizens have over their personal data.
Atea values privacy, for both our customers and our employees. We are committed to GDPR compliance and will be ready when the new data protection regulation takes effect in May 2018. To achieve this, Atea has initiated a common GDPR program to strengthen and improve data protection across the entire Atea Group.
The Atea GDPR Program addresses all services and underlying processes to be compliant with the requirements of GDPR. This includes all customer contracts where Atea is processing personal data on behalf of customers. All Atea subsidiaries will implement the same new controls and processes. This is to ensure a sufficient level of data protection regardless of which Atea subsidiary is processing personal data.
To ensure continuous data protection and fulfillment of GDPR requirements, Atea will monitor its compliance through both internal and external audits.
Atea’s global team has the knowledge and competence on GDPR to not only prepare our own business for the new regulation, but also help our customers to be ready when the regulation takes effect next year.
