Recognizing Employee Data Privacy
With less than six months left for GDPR to come
into effect, Michael DesRochers, Founder and
Managing Director at PoliteMail Software explains
how HR teams must prepare for the incoming
EU General Data Protection Legislation.
Less than a year away, on May 25, 2018, companies
with employees based within the European Union
(EU) must be in full compliance with the EU General
Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The intent of
the GDPR is to assure the privacy of EU residents
and facilitate the appropriate use and secure transfer
of personal data.
The GDPR enhances the prior EU Data Protection
Directive by better defining what constitutes personal
data, adding breach notification requirements and
significant penalties for non-compliance. The GDPR
requirements are also far broader than the previous
legislation and includes consent requirements to
collect personal data and data protection requirements
for cloud service providers.
