Society and community


​​​​​​​​​​​​Society and communityOur solutions touch billions of people's lives every day, giving them confidence in the solutions offered by their service providers. This involves processing large amounts of personal data so we have developed highly sophisticated controls to ensure its privacy. Many of our solutions have wider social benefits in areas such as ​ health, welfare, environment and safety.

Data privacy and confidentiality

In using our solutions, our clients often ask us to process large amounts of data relating to their end-users.While data privacy laws have been enacted in more than 100 countries, we have demonstrated our commitment to personal data privacy by establishing a global privacy program which uses the GDPR as a standard for protecting personal data in all locations around the world.​

Solutions with a special purpose

Our solutions have diverse social benefits beyond their immediate use. In particular, our technology for the Internet of Things is making waves in many areas of people's everyday lives – from home to bike to car. This kind of smart, connected technology can help tackle challenges such as reducing emissions and allowing the elderly to stay safe in their own home.

Working with communities

In 2017, Gemalto supported a diverse range of 61 'Your World' community projects involving more than 1,000 employees.​​​ Our disaster relief policy guides our response to sudden natural catastrophes such as earthquakes, tsunamis and floods.
