Overcoming the Challenges to User Data Privacy with Digital HRMS

Privacy of user data is a cause for concern in today's world even threats to data continue to multiply.

According to a study by Pew Research Center,79% of respondents say they are very concerned about how companies are using the data collect.

This indicates that data privacy does matter to users today and after unfortunate incidents of massive data breach, such as the one involving Facebook, people are not sure if they should trust organisations with their data. Today, they have realised how much vulnerable their personal data is, in the hands of the organisations that collect and store user data.

However, in today's data driven environment, it is not possible to stay away from sharing data with businesses all around us that we interact with in our everyday life. So, whether we download an app or sign up on a website to shop online, our data gets collected every time.

Why Privacy of HR Data is a Big Concern

It stands for General Data Protection Regulation and it comprises a set of laws governing the data privacy of the citizens of the European Union (EU) that came into force in May 2018. GDPR was defined by the European Union (EU), with UK also being a part of it. According to GDPR, any website or business that collects data of EU and UK citizens, are not allowed to use this data for their benefit. To put it simply, the business or website is not allowed to share the data with any third party without the prior consent of the users.
