Data privacy shake up: is HR ready?
2 November 2017
New data protection rules - the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - are coming into force which will have a significant impact on HR processes and policies. This is more than a few policy tweaks, and requires serious attention. At the same time the enforcement regime is going to be much tougher. In short, the risk profile, including within HR, will increase substantially.
Getting involved at an early stage enables HR teams to shape outcomes which work and are manageable within project timescales. This is not just a matter for compliance or legal teams.
