Unless you’ve been living on another planet, you can’t have failed to know about the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). They are big news for the recruitment industry and take the current data protection laws much further. The GDPR are in place now but they not enforceable until May 2018.
You might think that you still have a few months left before worrying about GDPR, that’s not the case. There is definitely a band-wagon that many suppliers have jumped on. They’re playing to the current fear around the fate of candidate databases…. but panic not. Whilst the regulations have been pitched as a ‘game changer’ by the ICO, it’s not all doom and gloom.
There are plenty of resources, whitepapers and webinars going on across the recruitment industry. To find out whether you need to sign up for one of these or if you can sit back in the knowledge that you have GDPR nailed, we’ve team up with our friends at ISV Online.
