Event description

Description

From the Data Protection Act to the General Data Protection Regulation:

Make sure you understand your organisation’s obligations before the law changes on 25 May 2018 and don't fall foul of enforcement action which can include heavy financial penalties.

This session by leading expert, Paul Ticher, will help you clear up misinformation about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), dispel rumours and leave you with a thorough understanding of the text of GDPR itself and what it really means.

GDPR will introduce some important changes in the rules about how data may be legally handled and in the responsibilities of organisations. At the same time, recent changes in the way fundraising and direct marketing are regulated means that all charities have to review their current practice.

This course will:

• give you confidence about the basics, for now and in the future
• look at data protection in context eg. relative to confidentiality
• explain the changes and options to meet the new requirements
• explore issues that will particularly affect charities
• look at options for fundraising and direct marketing activities
• enable you to draw up an action plan.

Who should attend:

This training is for not-for-profit organisations based in Richmond or offering services to Richmond residents.

The session is most suitable for people who are in any way responsible for Data Protection, especially anyone who is an organisational Data Protection Lead. Fundraisers, communications officers, database managers and people with a compliance role should find it particularly useful.

No prior knowledge of Data Protection is required.

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
