For any charity or individual new to GDPR or needing a refresher
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on the 25th of May 2018 and is the most significant change to data protection law in almost 20 years. The GDPR strengthens a number of existing principles and introduces more rights for individuals in the use of their personal data. GDPR should not be viewed as a tick-box exercise, that once ‘compliant’ it can be forgotten about. Charities need to view the regulation as one that requires on going monitoring and adherence. This half day training session will introduce GDPR to delegates, describe the differences between the Data Protection Act 1998 and provide practical steps that need to be taken in order to start and continue implementing GDPR.
