On 25 May 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force bringing key changes to the UK’s Data Protection requirements. This seminar will explore the latest learnings around the topic, highlighting what changes your organisation should incorporate to comply with the GDPR.
Alongside concerns around GDPR, general data protection is still a worry for many charities. Mismanaged data can result in serious consequences, with large fines currently being issues by the Information Commissioner's Office for data breaches.
The nature and scale of personal data which charities handle, including names, addresses and bank details of their supporters, employees and volunteers, make it more important than ever that organisations ensure they are complying with best practice in data protection and are up to date with latest guidance on GDPR.
Throughout this course attendees will understand the requirements of the latest data protection legislation, and the controls organisations need to have in place to ensure their data is safe. It will also provide practical examples of how data protection in an organisation works, including real life case studies of where and how breaches have occurred for charities. Finally, coverage of the GDPR will highlight its impact on organisations within the UK, even when we are outside the EU, and how best to meet regulation around this.
