On May 25th, the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect, and any company working with the data of an EU citizen will need to be in compliance, including consumer reporting agencies who perform background checks on EU citizens.

4 Areas for CRAs to Focus

If you qualify under this rule, there are four areas where these new regulations may touch on your processes:

  • Disclosure forms and opt outs
  • Breach notifications
  • ‍Data erasure and portability
  • Privacy impact assessments.

Check out our blog post on this topic (and view the webinar below) to learn more and help you get started as you work with your legal counsel to make sure you’re compliant.
