Specialist recruitment agency Appointments Personnel are supporting local businesses with a number of insightful articles to give a better understanding of the new GDPR regulations.
The GDPR regulations come into force in May 2018 and are set to have a significant impact on how UK businesses collect, store, secure and share personal data. It also means that any companies that experience a data breach are required to inform the public within 72 hours.
Considered to be the most significant change to data protection in the last 20 years, the transformative regulations will also carry much tougher punishments for companies that choose to not comply with them, including substantial fines of up to €10, 000,000.
With many companies still in the dark regarding the implications of GDPR, the articles that Appointments Personnel have put out couldn’t have come at a better time.
The series of free content that the recruitment specialists have collated gives in-depth information about the GDPR regulations, including how it is likely to impact businesses and recruitment in specific sectors.
Emma Bonfiglio, Managing Director of Appointments Personnel, said: “The introduction of the GDPR regulations is just around the corner and is causing many businesses to worry about how they are likely to be impacted.
“Worryingly, statistics have also revealed that 98% of businesses don’t have a plan in place for when the new legislation hits. This could be a sign of disorganisation amongst firms or perhaps indicates that there is not enough understanding of the subject.
“Government legislation tends to be complex and hard to digest which is why we have taken it upon ourselves to produce these articles. By reading these, companies will be able to decipher just how much the new regulation will impact them and will help them to establish the best course of action to take.”
