GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR is EU legislation that will provide a single data protection law for all EU countries. GDPR will come into effect for the UK on 25th May 2018. GDPR will replace the Data Protection Act, and may represent a significant change for organisations that hold and process personal data.
Charities, community centres, and other community groups will have to comply with GDPR just as businesses will. If your organisation holds personal data, such as contact information, bank account or credit card information, information about ethnicity or religious belief – then the new regulations will apply to you.
This course is organised by Voluntary Action Swindon and delivered by Aris Tsontzos, Head of Data, League Against Cruel Sports.
The course will cover:
- An overview of GDPR and an organisation’s responsibilities under the new law
- Some practical advice on thinking about an approach towards GDPR-readiness
- Responsible marketing in a post-GDPR world
And will include time for questions and answers.
The course costs £25 and will take place at Voluntary Action Swindon, 1 John Street, Swindon, SN1 1RT on 24th November from 10am – 12 noon.
