Data Sharing

Although not all organizations rely on data sharing as a core process to their business models, most organizations need to share some amount of personal information to operate efficiently. For example, data is often shared with third-parties who supply tools for HR processes. In many cases, employee personal information is entered and stored on the third party’s servers, where the use and protection of that information is out of the employer’s control. 

Whether data sharing is a key operation or passive transfer, organizations should determine if sharing of data is permitted, consider the privacy and compliance implications involved in data sharing, and ensure appropriate protections are in place for shared data.

  • Purpose: To share or not to share

  • Agreements: Get commitments in writing

  • Security: Beyond contractual obligations
