GDPR and the Role HR Plays

About the Podcast

On today’s show, we have Phil Byrne, Managing Partner at Enable ISO,  a company that specialises in consulting for organizations working toward ISO certification.

We ask Phil on the show to talk about all things compliance, in particular, GDPR.

GDPR often falls under the remit of HR in companies. we ask Phil what he thinks are the most common GDPR misconceptions in HR, what exactly is the role of the Data Protection Officer and does this responsibility sit with HR?

We also talk about the new Whistleblower legislation, who it affects and how do you go about dealing with a complaint.

If you are in HR and these areas fall under your remit, this is the pod for you. All Phils details will be available at the bottom of the page.

We really hope you enjoy it.
