Workplace Privacy in the 2019 Landscape: A Year After the GDPR
Concurrent with the General Data Protection Regulation’s (GDPR’s) implementation on May 25,2018, a substantial change to workplace privacy regulations was observed, not only to businesses situated in Europe, but also to those providing the European nations with products and services.
The GDPR prohibited the collection, storage, and utilization of EU citizens’ personal data without their consent. It is, therefore, of utmost importance for business owners to understand the scope and limitations of the new workplace privacy policies under the GDPR to ensure data and information protection as well as to avoid any non-compliance fines and penalties.
In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the pivotal implications of the GDPR to workplace privacy regulations a year after its implementation. Speakers will also offer helpful insights and tips for businesses in enforcing workplace privacy rules.
Key topics include:
- The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – A Lookback
- GDPR’s Implications on Businesses
- Workplace Privacy Policies Under GDPR
- Recent Developments on GDPR
- Best Compliance Strategies
