There is an ever increasing amount of data privacy and security legislation employers must comply with, including the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). To help organizations handling employee data comply with these increasingly complex Data Privacy regulations, HR Open Standards Consortium just released an HR-JSON Data Protection Standard that guides organizations managing the transfer of PII to third parties while meeting privacy requirements.
The number of companies experiencing data breaches is at an all-time high - there was a 40% increase in U.S data breaches alone in 2016 with a record-breaking 1093 data breaches.
