In new draft guidelines, the Israel Law, Information and Technology Authority has proposed that surveillance cameras in workplaces for security means cannot be used to monitor employees, and that businesses have the responsibility to notify workers of the cameras’ presence and purpose, Bloomberg BNA reports. If a policy for camera use is in place, the devices can be used to determine worker productivity. However, “If the footage is being reviewed out of concern that a stranger entered the premises, and a worker is seen in the background taking an unauthorized break, the footage cannot be used against the worker,” said ILITA’s Gili Basman Reingold. Questions surrounding the guidelines’ applicability to the “defense establishment,” its cybersecurity rules, and ownership still abound, the report adds. The guidelines are open to comment until Nov. 6. Editor's note: The recently released IAPP-OneTrust PIA Platform comes with a purpose-built template for HR initiatives.
