Introduction to GDPR for the Voluntary Sector

Training Date: 13 March 2018

Tuesday 13 March 2018, 9.30am-4.30pm – 151 Dale Street

On 25 May 2018, new regulations come into force intended to give individuals greater control over how organisations use their data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will affect how charities work with data and look after this valuable information. The new laws are more detailed and carry the potential for hefty financial penalties.

Run by NCVO, this interactive course will help you understand and implement your data processing in terms of storage, access, what you do if there is a data breach and training your staff.

By the end of the day you will have:

  • Full understanding of the principles and conditions of data processing and data subject rights under GDPR
  • Used practical tools to ensure your organisation complies with Data Protection legislation
  • Discussed the role and responsibility of your data controller, information asset owners and SIRO
  • Looked at subject access requests and how to deal with them, consent and other conditions for processing, international transfers of data and how to protect your data when using third party suppliers such as printers
  • Understood how to identify risk in your organisation

Whatever type of organisation you may be, if you process personal data you will need to be GDPR compliant. This would include anyone within an organisation that handles or processes the personal data of staff, service users, beneficiaries, volunteers, customers, members and supporters. If you process special category data such as health, sexual orientation and religious beliefs or children’s data, this course will help to guide you through your extra responsibilities you have under the new legislation. This course will also be suitable for individuals that procure services from third parties where personal data is shared.
