A data mapping exercise is the process of identifying, processing and mapping out the data flows of your organisation. This is a complex process, particularly for organisations with multiple systems and technology platforms in place. Think about the journey your candidates’ data will take, from the moment it enters your organisation. You should also document what information you collect about candidates at each stage of your recruitment process, and document how your organisation(s) use that data. As part of your work towards GDPR compliant processes, you will need to define your organisation’s legal bases for processing candidates’ information. 

You should define and document these legal bases during your data mapping exercise.

Unprepared for GDPR?

A 2016 independent survey of CIOs at large companies across the globe found that two-thirds of enterprises risk failure to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The EU General Data Protection Regulation was adopted in April 2016 to unify previously fragmented mandates across EU jurisdictions regarding how enterprises use, manage and delete customers’ Personally Identifiable Information. All enterprises in the EU, the US and elsewhere that capture PII relating to EU citizens must comply with its provisions by May 2018. Any failure to comply with GDPR exposes enterprises to fines of as much as €20 million or 4% of global turnover- whichever is higher. Learn the challenges and implications of non-compliance.

The main focus of GDPR will be to protect the personal data of all individuals residing within the EU, irrespective of where the company holding the data is based, and includes rules around holding, processing, profiling, maintaining and deleting that data to name a few. In 1998 the Data Protection Act was introduced by UK Parliament as the main piece of legislation to govern the processing of data on identifiable living people. Technology has evolved so much since the act was enforced, that this law is now significantly out of date and does not protect the individual as originally intended. The General Data Protection Regulation under EU law, which was adopted on 27th April 2016 and will apply from 25th May 2018.

GDPR

It’s essential that you review your approach to governance and data protection and plan your compliance now. Get all the key people onboard, update the relevant policies and procedures and develop any that are missing. Rather than aiming to be completely compliant by 25 May 2018, it’s realistic to have a ‘roadmap’ of how you are going to achieve complete compliance. A good starting point is to introduce a transparent data processing statement, or privacy statement, for all your clients. The ICO website provides more information about privacy statements with examples of good and bad privacy notices. 

Identify and document your legal basis for doing these. InternationalIf you operate internationally, make sure you know which supervisory authority you come under for data protection.

Our GDPR Plan: Everything You Need to Know [GDPR Guide]

On May 25, 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation will change the way businesses handle your data. Adopted in 2016, it replaces the outdated Data Protection Directive – marking the biggest change in data protection in 20 years. GDPR aims to address that challenge, by harmonizing data privacy laws across Europe, making it easier to do business across borders – and giving you more control over your personal data. Adopt an overall strategy for complying with GDPR.Identify and audit our personal data processing practices. Create a new privacy website where we’ll post data regulation updates, announcements, and resources. 

We run regular training and compliance sessions to make sure our information security team is always up-to-date on any new or changing regulations and best practices for data security. Based in the EU, even if you process data outside the EU.based outside the EU, but process personal data of EU residents. It’s worth keeping in mind that before GDPR, you still had to meet regulations when processing personal data. GDPR simply means data controllers must make a greater effort to process personal data within the law. If there’s a personal data breach, they need to notify the supervisory authorities and data subjects as soon as possible. 

Unlike past laws, GDPR also refers directly to data processors – and outlines how they must now comply. If you have a GetResponse account, you’re the controller of your contacts’ personal data.

GDPR summary: How will your data be affected?

With less than a month to go until the GDPR compliance rules come into force, never has the regulations – a set of frameworks designed to help people take back control of their data – been more needed. Despite being set up to manage how businesses handle data, the General Data Protection Regulation. If you ever share personal data with another person or company, GDPR will play a role in how that data is used. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data-protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used. Currently, the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998, which was enacted following the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, but this will be superseded by the new legislation. 

First, the EU wants to give people more control over how their personal data is used, bearing in mind that many companies such as Facebook and Google swap access to people’s data for use of their services. Even if controllers and processors are based outside the EU, the GDPR will still apply to them so long as they’re dealing with data belonging to EU residents. If processors are involved in a data breach, they’re far more liable under GDPR than they were under the Data Protection Act. Pseudonymised personal data may also be subject to GDPR rules, depending on how easy or hard it is to identify whose data it is. The GDPR requires that controllers and processors must be transparent about how they collect data, what they do with it, and how they process it, and must be clear in explaining these things to you. 

If you take recently issued fines issued by the ICO, which has a maximum penalty of £500,000, and scale them up under GDPR, you can see how much tougher the penalties for getting data protection wrong will soon become. Lawyers believe the UK is likely to adopt equivalent legislation to the GDPR following Brexit, so UK companies using EU data can continue to do so legally.

Weighing GDPR Risks For Google And Facebook

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation goes into effect next month, and analysts are weighing the implications for the two leading digital ad platforms, Facebook and Google. The potential GDPR risks range from fines for non-compliance to falling revenue due to a reduced ability to target users with ads. In a note this week, Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Justin Post outlined the potential GDPR risks to all internet firms. Whenever companies collect data on their users, they must clearly state what the data will be used for, obtain consent to collect it, and make it easy for users to opt out of having their data collected. They must obtain consent for each individual purpose of data collection, and it must be clear to users how their data will be used. 

Hood told Post that he hasn’t seen many examples of how companies are intending to obtain the consent of their users, but he did warn that the impact on digital ad revenues could be as high as 20% to 30% in the EU, depending on the platform. According to Post, the GDPR risks are the greatest for programmatic advertising because it will be difficult to convince users to give their consent to use their data for targeted ads. Two key platforms that are expected to be impacted the most are DoubleClick, which is operated by Google, and Facebook Audience Network. Based on Hood’s estimate of impact to digital revenues, he estimates that GDPR could have a negative impact of 2% to 3% on Facebook’s and Google’s total ad revenues. The BAML analyst also believes that Facebook and Google are in good positions as far as gaining user consent because of the size of their networks and the value they provide to users. 

Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley also spoke with an expert about the GDPR risks recently. Still, he doesn’t believe Facebook will see much impact to its revenues, and he doesn’t expect the company to have any problems targeting users with ads, despite the concerns others have.

GDPR Made Easy by GDPR123

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation will be enforced across Europe, including the UK. Currently the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998 to control how personal information is used by organisations, business, or the Government, but this will be superseded by the new legislation. GDPR introduces tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what companies can do with their data. It will affect any business worldwide holding personal data on customers, prospects or employees based within the EU, so organisations need to be preparing for the change now. If businesses ignore this law, they can be fined up to €20m or 4% of their global annual turnover – so the price of non-compliance could be very costly! 

The GDPR requires organisations to create and maintain plans to protect personal data that they collect, store and use, follow defined procedures and plans in the event of a data breach, regularly evaluate their security practices, and document evidence of their compliance. Many of the GDPR’s main concepts and principles are much the same as those in the current Data Protection Act, so if you are complying properly with the current law then most of your approach to compliance will remain valid under the GDPR and can be the starting point to build from. There are new elements and significant enhancements, so you will have to do some things for the first time and some things differently to be compliant with the GDPR. The Deadline is Coming. With the May 25th. 

deadline looming, it is essential to plan your approach to GDPR compliance now and to gain ‘buy in’ from key people in your organisation. You may need, for example, to put new procedures in place to deal with the GDPR’s new transparency and individuals’ rights provisions. In a large or complex business this could have significant budgetary, IT, personnel, governance and communications implications.
