Workplace Application:
Learn why HR needs to take a leadership role when it comes to data protection and privacy. 

Whether employees realize it or not, they are regularly exposed to sensitive data. We live in a world of increasing threats to data security, along with fast-evolving international regulations for data protection and privacy. HR naturally needs to take a lead in establishing a data security culture and in setting expectations of behavior around data protection. But should HR’s responsibilities go beyond employee awareness and training?

Learning Objectives:

  • Why data privacy is important to HR.
  • The impact of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on HR globally.
  • Specific steps that HR can take to prepare for future data privacy regulations.
