Key takeaways

  • The issue: Processing Article 10 GDPR data is an often necessary and important area for companies desiring a robust compliance investigation program and to meet their local and global compliance obligations (including checking sanctions lists). But this area is fraught with confusion and uncertainty as the rules in different European countries may be unclear and differ in how they have implemented their version of Article 10. How does Article 10 operate?
  • The law: How have Sweden, France and the UK interpreted Article 10 into their own laws and what are their rules for processing criminal data for purposes such as hiring, background checks, and employee monitoring.
  • The solution: How are companies able to process criminal data in practice? How do we handle the differing requirements?
