General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

GDPR is a regulation by which the European Union intends to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the Union.

RBC's Approach

Protecting your privacy and safeguarding your personal, business and financial information is a cornerstone of our business and will always be one of our highest priorities. RBC adheres to rigorous codes, policies and standards that govern what information may be collected, how it is used and how it is protected.

The RBC Privacy Risk Management program is global in nature; its oversight is managed by specialists who cover each country in which we operate. The Chief Privacy Officer provides direction and oversees Privacy Risk Management globally. Our Privacy Risk Management program is based on the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) privacy principles, which include cyber security as part of the Security Safeguards principle.

Our goal is to ensure our existing privacy program is enhanced to comply with GDPR while minimizing client impact.
