GDPR - is your business ready?

Aug 10, 2017

Ireland is set to implement the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018. While this may mean little for most employers who are already following the Data Protection Act, now would be a good time for employers to check the way they manage data as there would be increased protections for employees.

Under the new regulations, employers will be required to show how they comply with data protection principles, issue privacy notice, prepare for data portability (providing data electronically and in a commonly used format).

Importantly employers will have a month to respond to subject access requests and not the current 40 days. Please follow the link below for further guidance:
