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.
