Article 32 of the GDPR states “the controller and the processor shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk”.

We first covered this subject in 2017, but never has there been a better time than now to revisit whether password-protected emails are GDPR compliant.

Password-protecting and then emailing payslips could arguably demonstrate efforts towards compliance, you have taken technical measures in order to protect the personal data that is being transmitted over email. It is certainly more compliant than emailing payslips with no password protection.

However this does not necessarily solve your GDPR problem. There are several things to consider when emailing payslips to your employees (even when they are password protected), which are all covered in this free guide.
