Invenias Launches New GDPR Module


Invenias Continues to Pioneer Innovation with New GDPR Module
Latest release of Platform expands to enable customer compliance with the GDPR

29 November 2017, London

Invenias, the leading cloud-based platform for executive and strategic hiring, has today
announced the Invenias GDPR Module, which is the latest update to its flagship product
Invenias 9. The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018
will materially impact the way in which data is captured, stored, shared and moved. As a
result, the working practices of the executive search profession will be required to be fully
aligned with the requirements of the new legislation.

The Invenias GDPR Module, part of the Invenias Global Data Privacy Framework, allows
Invenias customers to manage data privacy with minimum disruption to their business. The
Module comprises of options to globally manage data privacy preferences, manage the
requirements to inform, manage consent (if and where required) and to manage the
requirement for the right to be forgotten and data subject access requests.
Commenting on the new release, Cameron Berry, Data Insight and Training Analyst at Sheffield Haworth says:
“The dedicated functionality will ensure we record the purpose and lawful basis for
processing data with minimal disruption to workflow. The solution offered is very much in
line with the way we want to work. We are confident Invenias will support us in meeting
the requirements of the GDPR.”

David Grundy, CEO, Invenias says: “Invenias is committed to full compliance with the GDPR.
The clock is ticking, and we know and understand that we need to support compliance well in
advance of the May 2018 enforcement deadline. Our customers can have confidence that they
are on the right platform and are fully supported in their compliance journey. Privacy has
always been at the heart of our business and is an essential part of what we do. Our customers
rely on us to take care of their sensitive and confidential data, and that of their candidates and
clients, as carefully as we would our own.”

Lucy Kendall, Director at ComplyGDPR comments: “The relationship between a candidate and
a search provider is one of trust. The GDPR demands data protection and privacy are
embedded in a search business. Privacy and trust are inextricably linked. Invenias is enabling
its clients to meet its data protection obligations by providing intuitive tools and applications
to achieve these privacy standards so trusted relationships are nurtured and maintained.”

Vicky Maxwell Davies, Managing Partner at Savannah adds: “It is reassuring to know that Invenias has invested so much time in understanding and responding to the compliance requirements of the GDPR.”

The Invenias GDPR Module is available globally now. To accompany the new release Invenias are running a series of free webinars, focusing on ‘The General Data Protection Regulations for Executive Search’ - Click here for more details.
