GDPR Checklist for Compliance

GDPR Checklist for Compliance

We’re sure you’ve seen a bulk of emails from different websites mentioning their changes in their privacy policy due to GDPR. But if you haven’t seen one yet and has no idea what GDPR is, then let us explain. GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation is a global data protection law passed by the European Union that shifts the ownership of customer data from the organizations that use it to the individual customer. All eyes are on the appropriate protection of customers’ private information and to comply is a must! But if you’re at a lost on what you need to change to be GDPR compliant, read on for a checklist of what you need to sort out.

 

Explicit Customer Consent

It’s now a must to ask customers first before processing or storing their data. The request not only needs to be clear and see but it also must be done so in a straightforward way by using easy to understand language. Silence or inactivity from the side of the customer should not be taken as a yes and companies that use their info must be able to prove that they received approval. Also, your customers now have the right to withdraw consent upon request in a reasonable timeframe.

 

Get A Data Protection Officer (DPO) If You Can

Hiring someone who specializes in data protection can save you a lot of worries. Your DPO is your point person to ensure GDPR compliance. This is especially important for companies larger than 10 to 15 employees that process personal data on daily basis and in sheer numbers. But what does the DPO role actually do? The role entails:

  • Regular and systematic monitoring of data on a large scale
  • Processing on a large scale of special categories of data

 

Conduct A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA)

You’ll definitely need to conduct a data protection impact assessment if your company stores personal data in a permanent storage. This should be done before any project should be carried out and it’s basically an audit within the company that will allow you to measure the effectivity of safeguarding the privacy of the individuals whose data you store. The DPIA aims to achieve these three:

  • Compliance with applicable legal, regulatory and policy requirements
  • Establish the risks and effects
  • Evaluates protections and alternative processes to mitigate privacy risks

 

Data Breach Policies

There will always be substantial risks when it comes to storing data. And Data Breach policies ensure that your customers’ trusts will be kept intact in case of the worse scenarios – which is data breach. The GDPR requires companies to notify local data protection authorities of any data breach situation within 72 hours of discovery. And yes, this means that every company will need the kind of technology that will allow them to detect and address breaches within a certain timeframe. Note as well that this is one of the stricter GDPR requirements and you may have to overhaul your internal data security policies for this.

 

Giving Them The Right to Opt-Out

Deleting personal data not only minimizes the amount of data each company has to keep but also gives customers the freedom to choose. So if a certain data is not needed or has been requested to be deleted, then the answer is yes delete it. And as mentioned, customers have every right to request to be taken off email lists and other such lists that a company may have that they store for marketing or other such purposes.

 

There you have it, a proper checklist for all your GDPR compliance needs. By the way, we’ve also updated our own Privacy Policy for our own GDPR compliance you can check out the updated version here.

We’ve Updated Our Privacy Policy!

We’ve Updated Our Privacy Policy!

We value our users’ privacy and know that the GDPR is aimed at making people know that their personal data are safe and not being used in some way that they do not approve. So here’s a quick rundown of what we changed to be GDPR compliant.

Check out our updated Privacy Policy here. We would love your feedback and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

EasyHire “Assessment” Feature

EasyHire “Assessment” Feature

The interview process is unique to each organization. It depends on the type of the job, the role, and the level. Some roles emphasize the candidate’s communication and presentation skills whereas others give more importance to domain knowledge and skill set.

A video interview would be the right choice if the role requires assessing the candidate’s presentation skill along with other things. On the other hand, a simple online assessment test would be sufficient if it is required to evaluate whether the candidate has the domain knowledge and the right set of skill for the job. EasyHire provides options for conducting both types of interviews  – a video interview as well as an assessment test.

Future of Interviewing is Here – Mobile Video Interviews

Future of Interviewing is Here – Mobile Video Interviews

Just at the end of last year, EasyHire.me proudly to announced a new innovation within our system that will allow hiring managers to have an even easier time reviewing applicants! We have integrated our platform with the internet browser systems that are accessible both on iOS and Android.  Candidates can now take interviews any time and anywhere without the need to install additional apps.

Having the ability to take an interview instantly from any location in the world puts you, as a hiring team member, in a better position by improving efficiency between you and the candidates. Statistics show that it allows you to increase your exposure to new candidates by 36%*.

Since hundreds of other people are competing for the same position it is important to contact the hiring team as fast as possible to conduct your interview. Being able to see in which order the interviews come in as a hiring manager puts you in an advantageous spot. Here is what NPR said about a study done in 2015,

“being the first person to apply for an interview allows you to gain a more objective review of your resume and gives you a higher chance of landing the position you are seeking” – NPR, 2015.

 

Since those applying first will almost always be the ones who are genuinely seeking the position our new system removes the barrier of additional apps in order to get the hiring managers to the new contacts as soon as possible. If the statistics aren’t enough to satisfy you, check out these three reasons on why you should use our system.

Here are the three reasons why you should use EasyHire.me for your next position:

  1. Uniqueness – Hiring managers have hundreds of choices. Set yourself apart with a mobile video interview.
  2. Convenience – Integrated interviews allow you to take an interview from any device, anywhere. If you find yourself in the library, dorm, or just lounging in the comfort of your living room you can take out your phone and quickly come in contact with a hiring manager.
  3. Efficiency – As a hiring team member you are able to review more interviews in a shorter amount of time. If you are a skilled individual at your position, you can get faster feedback from the candidate in order

If you are getting too many of inconsistent results getting in contact with hiring teams, we would be happy to show how EasyHire.me can lead to conduction of efficient, consistent, and meaningful job interviews.
