We take a look at the implications of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for whistleblowing systems.
The management of whistleblowing cases requires an appropriate corporate culture which reflects the organization’s intention to handle personal data and whistleblowing reports confidentially and with the utmost security.
The implementation of GDPR may seem like a lot of work, particularly for smaller and mid-sized companies. However, when looking at creating a culture of organizational transparency, security, and trust, is an undertaking that is well worth it. Whistleblowers will feel more secure knowing their data is protected and under stricter regulation. GDPR is an important step in creating a new generation of data regulations and initiatives across Europe, and hopefully, globally.
