Is your organisation’s data protection up to scratch?

DesktopData

In May 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect. Organisations need to start planning now to make sure they are fully compliant when the new regulation is implemented.

To help you prepare, WCVA in conjunction with the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) will be holding free monthly webinars from May 2017 focussing on data protection.

Our #DesktopData sessions take place from the comfort of your own computer and will cover topics such as:

  • Direct marketing
  • Privacy by design
  • Cyber security
  • Subject Access Requests

Plus there'll be opportunities for you to decide future themes by telling us what it is you need to know.

What is GDPR?

GDPR is a 21st century approach to data protection, it aims to provide more protection for individuals and therefore more privacy obligations for organisations. Help protect privacy and avoid potential fines by signing up to our webinars and keeping your organisation up to speed.

Coming up - Privacy by Design

It is important that privacy and data protection are a key consideration prior to the start of any project, grant or contract and monitored during its lifecycle.

In this webinar, we will explain the privacy by design approach and how it helps to minimise risks and build trust.

The next session in our #DesktopData series will be held at 2pm on Monday, 11 December 2017.

To sign up for a webinar please email training@wcva.org.uk to register your interest.
