GDPR – helping your charity to get up to speed with new regulations

The clock is ticking – from 25 May 2018, businesses across the UK will come under the net of new data protection rules, which if ignored could lead to significant fines and sanctions.

GDPR and its implications have been largely unreported by the media. Despite the fact that in less than seven months, all UK businesses – including charities and not for profit organisations – will need to be compliant with the new rules.

Any charity that holds data, whether it is for previous, existing or future donors or suppliers will need to co-operate with this new legislation or face the prospect of significant fines.

Recently, in conjunction with ICARIS Sentinel, we hosted a GDPR seminar aimed at encouraging businesses and charities to learn how they can prepare for the changes ahead.

If you were unable to attend, slides from our seminar are available to view here.

We have also produced a free guide which is available to download here, giving you essential facts and must-knows, including:

  • What you should be doing right now to prepare for GDPR
  • The ICO checklist for consent
  • The penalties, in depth
  • How to report a data breach
  • GDPR DOs and DON’Ts

We have also produced a myth-busting quiz which will help you to separate fact from fiction and help you understand the ramifications of the new regulations.
