Data Protection and GDPR - making sure you've got it right, 10 - 1
Good Data Protection compliance is not just a legal obligation; it also demonstrates that an organisation takes a responsible attitude to the information it holds about the people it works for, the people it works with and the people who support the work.
Most voluntary organisations are aware of how their responsibilities changed on 25th May 2018 under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and have taken steps to comply.
At the same time, changes in the way fundraising and direct marketing are regulated mean that all charities have had to review their current practice.
Now that things have settled down it is a good opportunity to review the position, identify any gaps, learn from experience and consolidate your Data Protection practice.
This course will:
Ensure that all participants are confident about the basics of Data Protection, both now and in the future
Put Data Protection in context – looking at its relationship to confidentiality, for example
Explain fully the changes that GDPR introduced and how the new requirements might be met
Explore in detail the issues that will particularly affect small- and medium-sized charities
The course does not require any prior knowledge of Data Protection. It is most suitable for people who have some responsibility for Data Protection, either at the organisational level (especially if they have been designated the organisation’s Data Protection Lead - including Trustees & CEOs) or as a team or department manager. Those with database management, communications, fundraising and compliance as part of their job role should find it particularly useful too.
