Codility Data Privacy Standards Exceed General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance Levels

Trusted HR Software Vendors are Essential Partners to Help Safeguard Businesses from GDPR Violations and Potentially Massive Fines

SAN FRANCISCO, May 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Codility, a worldwide leader in tech recruiting software, today announced that its data operations exceed the industry’s standards for privacy as required by the new European Union laws under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). According to a recent study conducted by the Ponemon Institute of more than 1,000 companies in the United States and European Union, nearly half (48 percent) said that they did not expect to meet the May 25 deadline for GDPR compliance or are unsure when they will achieve compliance.

“The Human Resources industry is particularly vulnerable to GDPR violations due to the highly sensitive and personal nature of the information it manages,” said Greg Jakacki, founder and CEO of Codility. “When you also consider that many companies leverage a variety of HR tools – for everything from conducting skills assessments to administering retirement benefits – you can see how complicated it is for businesses to be totally confident that their entire network of data is, and stays, GDPR compliant.”

Codility is committed to helping hiring teams carry out their tech recruiting efficiently, effectively, and compliantly. Operating through offices in San Francisco and Warsaw, Poland, and with more than 1,000 customers worldwide, navigating European Union and United States regulations pertaining to personal data protection is commonplace for Codility.

To help protect its customers and partners from incurring GDPR violations and the huge resulting fines, Codility introduced new levels of data transparency, security and accountability. It changed how it handles, stores and processes data, overhauled related internal procedures, gave customers more direct control to manage their own data, and more.
