Coming into effect on 25 May 2018, GDPR will introduce a number of new data protection obligations for organisations and new rights for individuals. It’s essential your company gets to grips with the changes and starts preparing now. Learn more on our campaigns page.
What does it mean for recruiters?
These new rules will have a significant impact on how recruiters process data. Individuals will gain:
the right to withdraw consent for the processing of their data
the right to be notified of a data breach
the right to know how their data will be used
the right to transfer their personal data to another provider
the “right to be forgotten”, i.e., for all their personal details to be deleted.
It’s business critical to know how GDPR will affect your company - and what measures you need to take to ensure compliance and avoid penalties and fines. Our workshops will walk you through everything you need to know.
What will the workshops cover?
An overview of GDPR and what’s changing
An understanding of key definitions and scope, for example:
The definition of personal data under new legislation
How these changes affect data processing
Consent – what is consent, when it is necessary to obtain it and how to get consent
