Course details: 

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes to effect on 25 May, 2018,  raises challenges for charities at the executive level and at the front-line. It will require organisations of all types to review their management of data about people.

However, GDPR also brings opportunities for organisations to improve how they manage information and improve efficiencies.
