LAS VEGAS, May 29, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Passport Technology has experienced impressive growth in the United Kingdom and Europe, driven by a commitment to securing high-value patron data by utilizing separate data regions in the United Kingdom, Europe and Canada.

With GDPR now enacted in the United Kingdom and Europe and Passport Technology’s entrance into Canada in the United States with CashValet®, POSpod™ and ActiveData RT™, the newly created Data Protection Officer role will ensure Passport Technology remains a leader in responsible governance.
