General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

GDPR is a new data and privacy law in regards to the organizations around the world. It came into effect on May 25, 2018, stating that all organizations should handle the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and data of European Union Citizens securely. The organizations that violate these rules will be levied harsh penalties.

EmpMonitor in accordance with GDPR Compliance

Principles relating to processing of personal data
(GDPR Article 5)

Empmonitor abides by GDPR and ensures that the personal data should be processed lawfully and for legitimate purposes. Through IP whitelisting feature, the dashboard access can be restricted as well as given to the authorized person after complete identification so that the personal data cannot be accessed automatically by anyone. This leads to data safety.

Processing of special categories of personal data
(GDPR Article 9)

Article 9 specifies the basic requirement for processing the different types of data such as biometric data, generic data, and data concerning the health of an individual. 

EmpMonitor does not have any built-in features for collecting employees’ health-related data. As conditions and limitations may be introduced further regarding the processing of these data so features can be customized as per needs.

Right to Erasure
(GDPR Article 17)

GDPR privacy policy outlines the “Right to Erasure, or right to be forgotten”. It means if the person wants the data to be deleted under any circumstances, then the controller has to erase without any delay.

EmpMonitor meets this requirement and provides a way to erase all the data. An admin has the access to delete all the collected screenshots, logs, and other data of an individual without impacting the data of others.

Record of Processing Activities
(GDPR Article 30)

GDPR mandates organizations to maintain an up-to-date database of when and how personal information is used. It could be in the form of files, email, unstructured data, or anything else. 

Empmonitor helps the controller to record the data of employee activities, what they are accessing at what time, and also helps to manage the flow of data in the organization.

Security of Processing
(GDPR Article 32)

Article 32 states that the controller and processor should implement some protective measures to handle the data in a secure manner and to make sure that the security level is adequate to the risk.

EmpMonitor is very well suited to these requirements. It blocks irrelevant websites, unwanted app installation, restricts the use of sharing sites, and prevents unauthorized access to the data.

Monitoring of Approved Codes of Conduct
(GDPR Article 41)

GDPR Article Recommends the use of approved codes of conduct. It means enterprises and trade associations can create codes of conduct to comply with the data protection law efficiently and cost-effectively.

EmpMonitor enables the controller to monitor all the activities of employees, any third party vendor, including the websites and applications used over the local network, or any other environments.
