Tuesday 26 September 2017, 4-6.30pm – 2nd Floor, Cunard Building, Water Street, Liverpool, L3 1EL.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force from 25 May 2018, superseding the Data Protection Act 1998. This change introduces a new era of data protection and privacy in the modern world and includes the ability of the Information Commissioner to fine charities and social enterprises up to 4% of total turnover for failing to comply with the legislation.
Central to the Regulation is the idea of privacy being a fundamental right, along with radical changes in the way organisations are required to collect and manage their data with new emphasis placed on organisations to demonstrate on-going compliance, resulting in increased accountability. This effects everything from Citizen’s Data, Evaluation Systems, HR Records and Fundraising Procedures.
To help ensure voluntary, community and social enterprises avoid significant financial penalties and provide commissioners with confidence with their data protection policy and procedures, Capacity has assembled a panel of experts to talk about the requirements for GDPR compliance. Come along to this informative and interactive awareness event and find out what you need to know to make sure your organization is fully prepared, along with useful tips and help on where to find extra support.
- Richard Marbrow, Group Manager, Corporate Governance – Information Commissioner’s Office
- Elaine Floodgate, Director Governance and Risk, Catch22
- Ian Sinclair-Ford, Co-Founder and Director, Data Guardsman Ltd
The event is appropriate for all organisations seeking advice and information on best practice for GDPR. A Q&A panel with our experts will give you the opportunity to have your GDPR questions answered. This will be followed by drinks and a brief networking session.
