In light of Data Privacy initiatives worldwide, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation Act (GDPR), PeopleSoft HCM has been planning updates that will help customers address some of these regulations.
To get started, Oracle has published an assessment of Personal and Sensitive Data as identified within PeopleSoft HCM, which is available through My Oracle Support (Doc ID 2313438.1).
Recently, PeopleSoft has provided additional data privacy capabilities by introducing an Applicant delete feature as well enhancing the existing Person Delete Process. For further information on these two features, please check out the Image Highlights, HCM Update Image 25 on the PeopleSoft Video Channel.
Also note that PeopleSoft is imminently planning to deliver a PeopleSoft Release Patch (PRP) that allows for employee consent for capturing employee data and another PRP that allows organizations to mask specific Personally Identifiable Information (PII) stored in PeopleSoft. You can track the release of these PRPs by using the following numbers: Bug ID 27619176 and Bug ID 27651377.
An earlier published White Paper on Data Privacy explains how existing tools and technology help to secure your PeopleSoft applications. This document will be further updated to include more features, such as Data Archive Manager.
We encourage you to monitor this blog for future updates on this topic.
