Recruiters, are you ready for the GDPR?

What is the GDPR?

The GDPR is Europe’s new framework for data protection laws that went into effect on May 25th, 2018. It regulates how organizations can collect, process, store, and share personal data online.

Global impact

Any organization that collects personal data from someone in the EU is required to be compliant. That means you need to be compliant if you’re recruiting, and therefore collecting the data of EU residents.

Why should I care about being compliant?

The penalties for non-compliance are high. Companies can be fined up to €20 million or 4 percent of their global revenue for non-compliance with key provisions of the GDPR.
