Conclusion: Corporate Communications is fully transparent and the GDPR regulation is no exception. We take the privacy and security of our clients and their personal information very seriously and we take every reasonable measure we can to protect and secure personal data that we may process. We have robust information security procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. Corporate Communications understands the importance of training regarding GDPR regulations, and our team have been informed about the importance of GDPR, privacy and security of data.
