With the coming into force of the reform of the Spanish Criminal Code generated by Organic Law 1/2015 of 30th of March, a new law was introduced whereby companies could mitigate or exonerate their criminal liability if they had adopted processes of organization and management, also known as “compliance programs”. While the compliance field in Spain has seen some progress in recent years, the abc Compliance team learned that many companies are still under- resourced in the capabilities needed to develop a credible criminal compliance program that is proportionate to their non-compliance risks.It is for this reason that abc Compliance developed an online platform to digitalize compliance training for employees of various corporate industries, thereby increasing the efficacy of companies’ compliance programs at a cost-effective price point.
Personal Data Protection Compliance
With the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 27 April 2016, on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (“General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”), coming into force on the 25th of May 2018, the need of companies to comply with personal data protection regulations has increased significantly. Through our online platform, abc Compliance seeks to train employees on the new regulation requirements.
