Apex Fund Services has partnered with DataGuidance to enhance the group’s data protection and data privacy programme.
Apex will use DataGuidance’s suite of privacy tools to receive research and intelligence on privacy legislation.
Apex will benefit from up-to-date information available for all jurisdictions and where a dedicated local Apex data protection officer is monitoring any change in legislation and its transposition by the local markets.
Sonja Maria Hilkhuijsen (pictured), global head of compliance, Apex Fund Services, says: “The use of the DataGuidance privacy platform across the group is evidence of Apex’s strong commitment to upholding the highest levels of privacy on a global scale. We are taking a proactive approach to implementing a global GDPR project and are already utilising the DataGuidance GDPR Portal’s dedicated tools and expert analysis to ensure all offices implement and maintain robust procedures. DataGuidance provides Apex with an important tool that will enable us to evolve our compliance processes seamlessly as the latest global and local developments unfold.”
David Longford, chief executive officer, DataGuidance, says: “DataGuidance supports the privacy teams of multinational organisations worldwide by providing the essential information that their internal privacy and compliance programmes are built upon. Our unique delivery of cross-jurisdictional regulatory intelligence, together with our highly responsive approach, is highly valued by our clients.
“We understand that the proactive nature of firms like Apex in addressing privacy regulation as a serious project means that their widespread global client base can be comfortable that compliance standards are being upheld and managed efficiently. In an increasingly complex and regulated world a proactive approach to data privacy is important and it takes forwarding thinking firms like Apex to lead the way.”
