As part of our own internal GDPR compliance preparations, networx have successfully completed a 5 day comprehensive course and independent examination to become fully Certified GDPR Practitioners.
The newly acquired accreditation marks a key stage in networx’ continued commitment to ensuring clients have the necessary tools and best advice when it comes to managing and processing data for recruitment purposes in line with the new law.
The course, which included vital information such as the differences between the current Data Protection Act and the new GDPR, also provided a welcomed clarification on many of the commonly misunderstood requirements of the regulation.
As certified practitioners, networx now have a solid understanding of the law and what we need to do in our primary role as Data Processor as well as how our software can support the responsibilities of our clients as Data Controllers.
GDPR is undoubtedly a primary focus for the majority of organisations right now with reports suggesting that 2/3 of UK firms are now hiring permanent employees to help meet the compliance deadline.
The investment made by networx to become certified ensures as an organisation we have the necessary knowledge to work alongside these newly appointed individuals whilst also guaranteeing that every client benefits from the best possible support and software when it comes to being compliant before May 2018.
