HR urged to prepare for new data protection law in Europe

The best way for organizations to prepare for the GDPR, according to Thymometrics, an employee engagement software firm based in Cambridge in the United Kingdom, is to ensure that HR is involved in the process.

For example, Jerry Pett, CEO and co-founder of Thymometrics, suggested in a blog post that HR can prepare for compliance by learning where : critical employee data systems are held, determining who owns the data based on contractual information, establishing a system where employees give explicit permission to the employer to gather, store and share their data, finding out what your cloud-based software vendors are doing with personal information and if they are taking steps to become compliant, and more.
