6 Essential Steps to Prepare for GDPR

How do you manage your employees’ data?

As of May 25th The new EU data rules have come into effect – and it will have a huge impact on organizations in North America.

If your company has offices or employees in locations globally, and processes, stores or transmits any EU citizens’ personal data, then the new rules certainly apply to you.

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is one of the biggest shake-ups ever seen affecting how data relating to an individual should be handled. As the gatekeepers and processors of personal data, HR and People teams have a crucial and legal role to play. The costs for non-compliance could cost companies dearly.

Employees will have to be informed of their rights and how their personal data will be processed, and HR and People teams will need to consider how they orchestrate this at the global level, whilst maintaining compliance with other local laws.

Ultimately, HR teams must understand their roles and responsibilities regarding data protection, and how they will handle any data breach or data loss.
