The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new, Europe-wide law that replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK. It is part of the wider package of reform to the data protection landscape that includes the Data Protection Bill. The GDPR sets out requirements for how organisations will need to handle personal data from 25 May 2018.
Dudley CVS is running a discussion group to help us all to get to grips on GDPR. We’ll share the most useful sources of information and guidance and help you to chat through and problem-solve any issues you may have. There are three sessions to choose from and anyone from the not-for-profit sector is welcome to attend and contribute. Whether you’re new to GDPR and need to catch up or whether you’d like to offer your knowledge to help others, you’ll be very welcome.
Please note that this is NOT a training session and Dudley CVS staff are not in a position to offer advice on data protection and the GDPR. This session is a chance to share how you’re preparing for GDPR and to get some feedback and support from your peers.
