Everything Recruiters Need to Know About GDPR

It’s pretty much exactly six months until the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect.   Zoho, who offer beautifully smart recruitment software to help you grow your business, share everything recruiters need to know about GDPR. 

There is a lot of information and chatter around about GDPR within the recruitment space right now.  Last month we wrote a blog with 9 Top Facts for Recruiters on GDPR.  Today we are going to share links to some of the best resources we’ve found on the topic to help you cut through the myths and conflicting advice.

Top GDPR Myths and Monsters is a great article written by Moyn who is a cyber resilience and Data Protection practitioner.   He wrote this back at the start of 2017 and it’s still a great go-to blog post with 29 “myths” busted.

If you feel you need to start with a more detailed overview then we recommend (sourced via the excellent Recruiting Brainfood by Hung Lee) GDPR – The Complete Guide For Recruiting Teams from Beamery.

Alex Moyle and Frances Lewis from Osborne Clark help to demystify GDPR and what it could mean for how recruiters operating practices in their LiveChat show “Is GDPR Kryptonite for Recruiters?“.   Louise also did a show with Helen Haddon of Comply GDPR back in July called What is GDPR & should I care? where Helen talked about the main issues for recruiters

Firefish have produced a great eBook How to use GDPR to your Agency’s Advantage which, in a breath of fresh air, is focussing on some of the benefits rather than the threats.

Not recruitment specific but we recommend Common GDPR myths, debunked from Digiday which looks at 5 top “mis-truths”

This Visual representation of IAPP’s GDPR Awareness Guide is a nice overview for those who like to view things in a different way

Finally, you really can’t go far from with this article straight from the Information Commissioner’s Blog: GDPR – sorting the fact from the fiction.  It’s written by Elizabeth Denham who is the Information Commissioner for the United Kingdom who was worried that the misinformation being circulated was in danger of being considered truth.  You can check out all posts on the subject on the ICO website.

More from Zoho next month!
