GDPR Regulations come into force from May 27th.

What can you do to help make your sensitive Payroll Data GDPR Compliant?

  • Encrypt your hard drive
  • Protect your data from external hackers with the use of a firewall
  • Use strong passwords to limit access to authorised personnel only
  • Review what information can be sent by email – ensure that it is encrypted and password protected.
  • Have strong procedures and policies to manage your payroll data
  • Know what data you have, including in backup files, and decide if you really need to have it and how long you need to keep it for.
  • And don’t forget, GDPR covers ALL personal data you hold – both electronically and on paper – all personal data must be held securely.
