COMBINING GROWTH WITH TRUST

Although data are essential to the development of the digital economy, protecting personal data and privacy has become a major concern for users.

With its digital activities, the Lagardère group lies at the heart of the digital economy and so it is making major efforts in this area, which is receiving increasing media coverage.

In 2017, the Group launched a project to prepare for the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, which will be fully in force in 2018 and aims to increase public trust in the digital economy and thus foster its growth.

The project will bring together a large number of participants, including IT specialists, lawyers and business-line staff, because personal data are a central issue in many of the Group’s operations.

The project is a unique opportunity for the Lagardère group to strengthen the data culture within its teams, in order to offer ever more attractive services, but also to bolster the trust that exists between the Group and its stakeholders, particularly its users, customers, suppliers and employees.
