In recent weeks 13 charities have been fined amounts between £6,000 and £25,000 by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for misusing supporters’ personal data; the ICO’s approach indicates that there has been a fundamental policy shift in its interpretation of data protection legislation but, with no clear, practical guidance being offered, charities have been left in a position of uncertainty about what they should, or can legally, do.
In our panel discussion, we aim to take you through some of the most common questions and dilemmas, highlighting practical steps which charities should be taking to manage this period of uncertainty, as well as offering recommended actions to help you get to grips with and start planning for GDPR compliance:
How should we be thinking about data protection and new GDPR compliance?
Chairing the discussion will be Partner, Jonathan Brinsden alongside expert speakers Daniel Fluskey from the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) with Penny Bygrave and Nicola Evans from Bircham Dyson Bell.
IoF and BDB have also published a guide on the essentials of the GDPR which can be accessed here.
