“As soon as I learned of GatedTalent, I knew it would be a tool that would add immediate value!

GatedTalent has allowed me to manage the legitimising of my data without even leaving our FileFinder Anywhere CRM. It has made becoming GDPR-compliant infinitely easier, and is a massive time saver!”

GDPR and Executive Search – Preparing for the tidal wave of inbound regulation!

Get our free White Paper

On Jan 6, 2017, Dillistone Systems announced that it had become the first executive search specialist technology supplier to become accredited under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. This is the new framework which replaced “Safe Harbor” and it’s a pretty big deal in terms of storing information on candidates.

But it’s also nothing compared to what is coming. In May 2018, the new “General Data Protection Regulations” (GDPR) come into play. If your executive search firm stores electronic information on European citizens – even if your firm is not in Europe – you will be impacted… the rules are tough and the fines draconian – up to 20 Million Euros (potentially more for very large firms). Companies that break the rules and suffer a breach could be wiped out. We’ve written a whitepaper that explains why GDPR should be the highest priority for Executive Search firms in 2017.

Available as a Browser-based, Cloud-hosted App or via a variety of alternative deployment models, search firms and corporate clients have been relying for years on FileFinder technology to better manage the process of executive search.

If you choose to implement our FileFinder cloud solution, your data is stored securely. Unlike other vendors, we never cache data on local machines/devices, ensuring you are not risking data breaches via a lost laptop or phone. We became the first specialist vendor to be accredited to the US / EU Privacy Shield and are thought leaders in terms of GDPR and data privacy, with our complimentary on-demand webinar recording and white papers accessed worldwide.
