The five-minute management idea: wearable tech

March 2, 2018, Chartered Management Institute

Daniel Cooper is quoted in a Chartered Management Institute article regarding wearable technology. Providing the legal perspective, Cooper says, "Any employer processing personal information is subject to a range of obligations–this includes making sure they’re very transparent about what they collect, ensuring they have a legal basis for processing that data. They can only collect what is relevant and proportionate to their purposes.”

Next year, the EU General Data Protection Regulation will come into force. “What is really different… are the fines,” Cooper explains. “In May 2018, when the law takes effect, the scope for sanctions will be much higher. There’s the potential for companies’ worldwide turnover to be exposed, up to four per cent.”
