GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation – will unify and strengthen data protection across the whole of the EU. The regulations provide individuals (candidates) with more control than they have previously had over what companies can do with their personal data. Fines for non-compliance and data breaches are considerable.

The regulations will impact any business that collects, processes and uses personal information – with implications for anyone that recruits staff.
