Data protection: what you need to know about GDPR

Rachel Masterton, Assistant Data Protection Commissioner

New regulations will be introduced in 2018 to give individuals greater control over their data, and how it is used by organisations.  The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will affect any business, charity, and voluntary organisation that stores data about people, including their members, trustees, and funders.  The new laws will bring significant changes to data protection requirements, and will carry the potential for severe penalties.  GDPR should not be ignored, and charities should start their planning now.

  • What is Data Protection

  • Why are the current regulations being changed

  • How are charities likely to be affected

  • What should charities be doing now to accommodate GDPR

Many charities already use social media – but does it bring value to your organisation’s aims?  Does your charity have a social media strategy, and do you measure its effectiveness.  It is easy to casually use Facebook or Twitter, but their true value would be to help your charity achieve its goals.  By focussing on your objectives, you can easily create a digital strategy, covering social media, email newsletter, and website. 

  • Is your charity already online

  • Making use of the AGC websites

  • Social Media – the basics

  • Why produce/review a digital strategy

  • Tying it all together

  • Some social media hints & tips
