Our business is built on trust, so it's critical that we conduct our activities with honesty and integrity, comply with best practice and meet the highest standards of corporate governance.
The Gemalto Board is committed to meeting the highest standards of corporate governance. We aim for a rich blend of experience around the table to provide broad insights into the global technological environment in which we operate. For more information on Gemalto's governance structure see our 2015 Annual Report.
Our Code of Ethics, anti-fraud framework and policy of responsible financial management are essential parts of the Gemalto's culture. In October 2015, we ran an internal communication campaign on Ethics to illustrate key themes such as fair competition and fighting fraud. We also trained some 880 people in anti-fraud, anti-bribery, anti-trust and ethics, and some 2,050 employees in CFIUS* and trade compliance topics.
Control and compliance
We are committed to full compliance with international, regional and local customs and trade control laws, regulations and directives wherever we do business. Our focus areas include: trade compliance; compliance with relevant industry directives and regulations; quality and reliability; human rights; and data privacy and security regulations.
