At Sympa, we continuously keep thinking about how we can better support the HR function in the forthcoming EU's general data protection regulation, GDPR. In addition to Sympa's downloadable GDPR checklist for HR, we also provide GDPR facts and tips to help HR prepare for the coming change in our continuously updating GDPR blog series.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes place – what HR-professionals really need to know about it?

The new EU:s people data regulation (General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR) will transform the principles the data protection and data security issues have been handled within organisations. By May 25th 2018, organisations that handle private European data in the EU need to have fully implemented GDPR. This means quite some changes in the responsibilities HR systems and HR function have.

But what is it that really is changing and what HR should know by know?

We provide answers in the Sympa GDPR blog series for HR. We want to help HR prepare for the coming change and to determine organisation’s readiness for GDPR and to provide answers for the questions HR might have about the change.

Our GDPR blog series is constantly updated with new information to provide answers in the questions HR might have, such as:

  • What is GDPR and why everyone should love it?
  • What are the most important next steps for HR to comply with GDPR?
  • How GDPR proves and strengthens the strategic role of HR?
