9.30, 9.15 Registration
Policies and Procedures
Who the course is for
The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now in force, as is the new Data Protection Act 2018 which enshrines the GDPR into UK law. The law applies to all types and sizes of organisations, including charities and community groups – any business that routinely handles personal data.
This course is for voluntary and community organisations who have maybe made a start on their compliance but have stalled, or for anyone needing a refresher on the key points of the law and the priority actions they need to take in their organisation. And if GDPR has passed you by so far – it’s a chance to catch up.
It is aimed at trustees, managers and key personnel with responsibility for personal data management. It may also help reinforce some GDPR compliance activities your organisation has already completed.
