We are delighted to announce Chris Hatch as a guest speaker at PrivSec London, coming to London’s Exhibition Centre on February 4th and 5th 2020.
Bringing the very latest expert insight on global data privacy and cyber security issues, the two-day conference will see CEOs, CISOs, data practitioners and IT professionals come together to network, share ideas and knowledge while hearing the views of subject-matter specialists.
Exclusively at PrivSec London, Chris Hatch, Head of Data Management at REED, will be speaking as part of a panel debate discussing collaborative approaches to GDPR that the recruitment process requires.
Unprecedented level of industry scrutiny
While media focus has rightly fallen on keeping the consumer’s data secure, bosses need to be equally diligent when it comes to safeguarding the personal and private information of employees, both current and prospective.
Under the EU data regulation, an employer must provide a job applicant with an information notice – known as a privacy notice or fair processing notice – when the employer collects any personal data about the applicant through the recruitment pathway. This applies whether the information is coming directly from the applicant or from a third party such as a recruitment agency.
If it has not been done already, bosses need to ensure that the broader company has the right policies in place with regards to how long information belonging to prospective new hires will be retained.
While employers should hold on to data for the minimum time required, there are times when the hiring organisation will have reason to keep applicant data for longer periods.
Views from the industry experts
The intricacies of data handling through recruitment will be explored by Chris and co-panellists at PrivSec London including:
- Adeseye Adeyemi, Data Protection Manager, Page Group
- Hayley Youngs, DPO, Manpower
Emphasis will fall on how collaboration is key to ensuring legal obligations are observed efficiently, so that job applicants’ private and personal information remains safe and secure throughout the hiring process.
