Data privacy manage the proper handling of an individual’s sensitive and personal information. A large number of companies face the challenge of utilizing employee and applicant data while protecting a person’s privacy and personally identifiable information.

PeopleSoft has delivered features that comply with data privacy laws and allows you to:

  • Mask or hide personal data
  • Remove employee and applicant personal details
  • Obtain employee acknowledgment and consent
  • Identify sensitive and personable identifiable information

Data Masking in PeopleSoft HCM

Manager can employ the Installation Table to personal data masking. Choose “HCM Options” within the Installation Table. For personal and sensitive information shared by employees, it’s essential that the data is accessed by only authorized administrators such as HR administrators or HR service representatives.

PeopleSoft human capital management (HCM) provides role-levels protection for administrator components and make sure that only allowed users can access. To protect sensitive data, you can hide sensitive fields, for example, an employee’s national ID, date of birth (DOB), bank details, drivers license number, and passport number. To allow data masking, choose the “Enable Masking” checkbox on the Installation Table and tap to “Save" option.

For allowing data masking at the component and field group level, explore for “Set Up Component Level Masking.” For users without approved roles, the system hides the sensitive fields and masks the associated fields. For instance, you can pick to mask an employee’s driver's license numbers. You can allow full or incomplete masking. When HR representatives with insufficient security access review new hire assignments for the newly hired employee, they can confirm the appearance of a driver's license number, but the amount will be partially hidden.

Deleting Data in PeopleSoft HCM

It is also an essential part of data privacy laws. To delete employee data for a new hire, you move to "Applicant ID Delete page." Under this page, explore for your new hire. The right to be neglected entitles an employee or applicant to compel the company to erase his/her personal information. If an applicant requests to have his information deleted, the administrator chooses the applicant to be removed and runs the Applicant Delete process.

If an employee decided to try another opportunity and asked that all of his personal information be forgotten, to approve this request, the administrator must move to the "Person ID Delete page." After that, find for the employee. The administrator can eliminate specific tables from deletion.
