Data protection

The new EU regulation GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into play in May 2018. GDPR is a set of rules and requirements that will strengthen the protection of personal data managed by businesses. To be fully prepared for GDPR a project manager was assigned, reporting directly to Transcom CEO, as well as a steering committee that has been initiated comprised of various senior members of Transcom including our Global Director of Security and Privacy, Global Head of Legal, Global Governance, Global HR and Global IT Operations. A gap analysis was made to map all potential risks in connection to GDPR. Moreover, the data privacy governance and contractual framework is being reviewed in the context of GDPR and will be implemented. Transcom personnel will go through specific GDPR trainings to complete the cycle.

Security awareness training is an annual requirement at Transcom and must be made within 30 days of a new hire. Transcom will continually evaluate and apply the latest knowledge and technology to uphold our security measures and we are confident that we are well equipped to comply with the coming data protection regulations.
