GDPR and Executive Search
On-demand Webinar Recording
In May 2018, Executive Search will change forever. New privacy rules are being implemented which will dramatically change how search firms – and corporate recruiters – store information. The new rules will be backed up by huge, business destroying fines of up to €20,000,000 or 4% of global revenue – whichever is the larger.
“GDPR and Executive Search Part 2: Getting from where you are to GDPR Compliancy – Your Action Plan”
“GDPR and Executive Search – it’s not all about your database”
The GDPR is not just about your database or IT security, it’s a change management project. In this webinar, Helen Haddon, founder of ComplyGDPR, explains how data breaches are most likely to occur in an executive search or recruitment context through the actions of consultants and staff. She sets out practical actions that can be taken to reduce the risk of a breach and a fine.

EARLY BIRD RATES AVAILABLE NOW: The 2017 World Executive Search Congress will take place on October 9-10 in London, UK
The impact of GDPR on the recruitment industry continues to make the headlines, but finding advice that takes into account the intricacies of the Executive Search process is much harder to come by.
Apart from expert insights on topic targeting every aspect of Executive Recruiting, the upcoming congress will give the attendees the opportunity to:
- – Hear from a GDPR legal expert Simon Stokes, Partner at Blake Morgan LLP, who will talk about the new rules and the specific implications for Executive Search industry
- – Ask questions and participate in a discussion with a panel of industry practitioners to learn how the rules are being implemented and to return to the office with an action plan based on the experience and advice of others in the industry.

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.
