Suppawting Privacy Awareness Week!
Privacy is key to what PeopleCheck does and we are supporters of Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) from 13-19 May 2018. This year is a big one in the privacy arena, having already seen the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme kick off in February and in a few weeks the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into play. Privacy is more important than ever and this year’s theme of “From principles to practice” is a reflection of PeopleCheck’s approach – we take the principles from relevant legislation and guidelines and incorporate these into our background checking processes so that the privacy of all parties is respected and our clients are protected without having to do the hard yards themselves.
We would love to see our clients and network of contacts taking some time this week to consider how personal information is handled in their own organisations and ways to improve privacy practices. Happy PAW!
