General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) - What is it, and what can a small charity do to prepare?
Monday 19 March 2018, 10:30am - 02:30pm

The General Data Protection Regulations will protect the personal data of EU citizens. If your organisation handles the personal data of EU citizens, regardless of where you are based in the world, you’ll need to take some important steps to ensure that data is correctly controlled, processed, maintained, retained and secured.

Following a meeting held in our office at Wessex Community Action in November, when Debrah Biggs presented an introduction to GDPR, our members asked us to arrange a further session to understand the details and what you need to do before May 2018 when this legislation comes into effect.  We have arranged for Aris Tsontzos, a seasoned data practitioner within the voluntary sector, to deliver a presentation and answer all your questions.  Aris is experienced in the age-old art of thinking about how to do things, writing them down, making a plan and then sticking to it.  At the end of this session you should have the knowledge to get your organisation ready for GDPR in time for the deadline of 25th May 2018.
