Charity Trustee and Governance Series 2018 – GDPR

Tuesday 7:45 am | 30th January 2018

We are delighted to announce the first two events in our 2018 Trustee and Governance Series.

At this first discussion, Isla Gibson from The Dragonfly Agency will run a practical session on GDPR – 4 months to deadline! The second event, with OSCR on the Trustees’ Report, can be found here.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25th May 2018 and will effect all organisations that manage the personal data of EU citizens. All organisations will need to ensure they are compliant with the legislation and also adhere to the e-Privacy framework in order to avoid fines and associated damaging publicity. This session will help to highlight both the similarities and differences between the proposed new legislation and the current Data Protection legislation with a focus on the changes of storing personal data, and will also provide simple pointers and advice on how to ensure your firm is fully compliant with the new rules. Join our expert, Isla Gibson from The Dragonfly Agency, who will cover:

  • What the rules are
  • How to prepare your charity
  • Communication steps internally and externally
  • Recommended practice on handling data
  • What to do to ensure future marketing activities reflect the compliance
