My first boss in human resources ran a recruitment cabinet for financial professionals. As a dedicated professional, educated as a master in law, she was asked to become part of the professional federation around 1995.
The directive 95/46/EC on personal data processing came. Consequently, the privacy law was an explicit part of the code of conduct and became part of the accreditation system before you could operate as a recruitment cabinet.
That's why I have been familiar with the law of privacy since the dawn of the internet. Co-Inpetto started in 1999 as a recruitment cabinet for IT professionals and business consultants.
Business models in our field were changing because of digital. The market wasn't functioning anymore.
Therefore I defined a PDS (personal data service) as a solution to deal with privacy, reduce administration costs, get richer data available, and above all, as an opportunity to innovate in value creation models.
Does your organization already have an "as-is" processing register, as asked in art. 30 of the GDPR? Please do it and get prepared. As you know, PDS (personal data service) for every single person is rolling out with Threefold.
A processing register helps to open up the conversation and create better value, thanks to the rolling out of PDS. Contact me if I can help you. Currently, I am pursuing a DPO postgraduate degree at HOWEST.
