March 21 2019: Hemel Hempstead, UK – NGA Human Resources today announced that it is the first organization to have obtained an assurance report issued by KPMG Advisory in Belgium on its GDPR related controls.

For clients, this independent examination provides reasonable assurance that the GDPR related systems and controls of NGA HR, a global HR and payroll services company, operate in compliance with relevant GDPR requirements.

“We can confirm that NGA Human Resources is the first, and so far, only organization to have obtained a KPMG assurance report on GDPR related controls.
