EU Whistleblower Protection Directive: What do I need to Know?

What does the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive mean for your organisation? What steps should you take to make sure you remain compliant?

In December 2019 a new regulation was published in order to create a new standard for whistleblower protection within the European Union.
We met with Chief Compliance Officer and data privacy expert, Keith Read, to outline the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive and gain a better understanding of what will be enforced, where, and when. In this guide Keith answers some important questions about this new regulation including:

  • What are the key requirements to be aware of?
  • What type of companies are affected?
  • Are there different considerations for SME’s (Small to Medium Enterprises) vs. Enterprises?
