Global’s Response to Privacy Breach
A press statement issued by Global RESP:
Global RESP Corporation “Global” and the Global family of companies have always respected and protected the public’s private information and will continue to do so. Earlier today, the OSC issued a statement regarding a former, independent Dealing Representative, Nellie Acar, who allegedly purchased patient information from an employee of the Rouge Valley Health System.
Global took immediate action once notified of Ms. Acar’s alleged activities and terminated her, as it is a severe violation of our policies and procedures.
Global has fully cooperated with the Ontario Securities Commission’s Joint Serious Offences Team during this investigation and will continue to do so until the matter is closed.
