Securing your business data is no longer best practice; it is your legal duty. The GDPR makes Privacy By Design a compulsory part of your business.

Privacy By Design means that you can only use software and services which have been developed with security as a top consideration, at every stage of development. But how can you be sure of this, in a real-world situation? The quickest solution is to choose a service from a trusted provider.

At eBoss, we are open and transparent about our commitments to privacy, and to the security of your personal data. Recruitment agencies looking for a managed solution need look no further – eBoss data security tools ensure out-of-the-box solutions, or custom-fitted to suit your enterprise.

Take a sneak peek at the customer experience in our public-facing GDPR compliance request portal:


1) When your candidates receive a message from you about GDPR compliance, they will have the option to visit a link and either grant permission, or deny it.

2) The permissions page is a public-facing part of your system. Your database is automatically updated, following every interaction.

3) If a client has denied permission, the GDPR icon will be shown in red. If permission has been granted, the GDPR icon will be shown in green.
