Employers must review the rights of their employees under GDPR in detail and have a thorough understanding of them now, to ensure compliance when the regulation takes effect. Here’s how:
GDPR requires you to keep “a record of processing activities” which basically is an inventory of the personal data you are processing.
Keeping personal data longer than required has become a real liability with GDPR, and businesses need to make sure they get rid of it now.
