The world’s largest background screening provider Sterling Talent Solutions will be holding a webinar on Tuesday, 30 May 2017 in a bif to educate organisations on the forthcoming European Union Data Protection Regulations. With GDPR coming in in May 2018, it is vital that any organisation that has not started its preparations does so and this will be the first webinar by the company in a series that will offer guidance on a range of GDPR topics. In a statement about the new webinar, the VP of Sterling Talent Solutions Oram Kiazim said:
“The GDPR requires organisations to be more accountable with how they handle personal information. Employers need to be prepared for the changes ahead by devising a holistic strategy around what this will impact, including their background screening programme.”
The initial webinar will begin at 2PM British Summer Time on May 30, 2017 and will last 30 minutes. The webinar is completely free but attendees must sign on in advance at the following address: https://event.on24.com/wcc/r/1422356/6917B170034572C461FAD5A12EAA98C2?partnerref=PR
