The GDPR Race Is On

Data protection reform is coming

The British Institute of Recruiters has shared 2 guides to help recruiters and HR professionals navigate GDPR.

All businesses that use personal data have until 25 May 2018 to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation. Non-compliance can lead to potential fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual worldwide turnover, whichever is bigger.

The GDPR requires businesses to carry out a root and branch review of how they collect and use personal data. Doing nothing is not an option and the sooner you start the better. May 2018 may sound a long way off but the scale of the reforms means that you need to deal with the issues sooner rather than later.

Here are 2 guides to help you get ready!
