Achieving & Maintaining Compliance with GDPR

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), came into effect on 25 May 2018.

However, social enterprises and charities will continue to have to work to achieve and maintain compliance with this challenging regulation. Ensuring that your organisation is adhering to current data protection laws and best practices is a crucial element when it comes to protecting yourself from potentially severe financial and reputational risks.

GDPR also brings opportunities for community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises to improve how they manage information and improve efficiencies.

This full-day workshop will provide attendees with both a high-level overview of data protection legislation and your obligations plus a clear understanding of the practical next steps you need to take to meet them. 

In particular, this interactive 1-day workshop will walk the participants through:

  • Understanding the GDPR from a strategic perspective
  • Understanding the key changes in the GDPR
  • Developing an understanding of the actions you need to take to improve compliance
  • Understanding what you need to do to make the GDPR work for your organisation.

Participants will receive a range of resources and templates to compliment the training.
