Best Practices for GDPR Compliance

At Crocodile HR Software, we understand that maintaining the integrity of your personal data is paramount. More so in a time when data breaches and misuse of personal information have become a serious concern for both individuals and businesses. One way of ensuring data is well protected is through compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Understanding GDPR

Introduced by the European Union (EU) in May 2018, the GDPR sets out rules for how companies should handle personal data. It ensures that any data that pertains to persons within the EU are processed and stored securely. This is not limited to businesses in the EU, but extends to any company that deals with EU citizens’ data.

The GDPR provides individuals with certain rights over their personal data. These include the right to access, correct, delete, restrict the processing of their personal data, and to object to its processing. Non-compliance can result in hefty fines and damage to reputation.

Maintain Transparency

Informing employees about how their data is being utilized and ensuring there’s ample transparency is key under GDPR. With Crocodile HR software, you can easily keep each member of your workforce informed about their data usage through automated communications.

Under GDPR, it is of utmost importance to collect only the data that is necessary for a specific purpose. Our software includes features that limit unnecessary data collection and storage, aiding you in practising data minimisation.

Employ Strong Security Measures

Your employees’ personal data should be protected by appropriate security measures. With Crocodile’s robust security capabilities including encryption and access controls, you can be confident that your data is guarded against breaches.

In the unfortunate event of a data breach, GDPR requires organisations to notify relevant parties within 72 hours. Our software has an integrated incident management system to ensure timely reporting and response to any potential data breaches.

Continual Evaluation and Update of Processes

GDPR compliance is an ongoing process, not a one-time task. Regular audits and updates of data protection measures are crucial. Our software makes it easy for you to continually evaluate and update your data protection strategies.
