Whistleblowing-related data in the EU must be handled in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and potentially a range of other laws, such as France’s Sapin II. Join this webinar to learn how to review your whistleblowing processes to comply with the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive, the GDPR and others, including conducting a Data Privacy Impact Assessment (DPIA) and managing issues such as recording calls and keeping records – and also discover where practical conflicts between the laws can occur, such as in relation to retaliation.
