Data Protection and GDPR - London - FULLY BOOKED

Thursday, 25 Jan 2018, 09:30 - 13:00


On 25 May 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforceable, bringing key changes to the UK’s data protection requirements .This seminar will explore what your charity’s requirements are currently and what changes you will need to 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 fines of up to £500,000 currently being issued by the Information Commissioner's Office for data breaches.

Charities hold significant amounts of personal data on their systems, including names, addresses and bank details of their supporters, employees and volunteers. This is why it is more important than ever for organisations to ensure that they are complying with best practice in data protection.

 Throughout this course attendees will understand the requirements of the current and future data protection legislation, and the controls organisations need to have in place to ensure your 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 forthcoming GDPR will highlight its impact on organisations within the UK, even when we are outside the EU, and how best to prepare for the new regulatory regime.

This course is run in association with:
