GDPR: What you need to know

Tuesday 14th November 2017

Venue: Resource for London, London

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into force on 25 May 2018. The new legislation impacts on all aspects of charity business from marketing to fundraising, from HR to IT, and all organisations need to take steps to prepare.

In this half-day course Carla Whalen, Associate Solicitor in the charity team at Russell-Cooke LLP, will:

  • Give an overview of the new concepts and approaches in the GDPR
  • Outline the legal bases for processing personal data and the conditions for getting consent from individuals
  • Discuss what must be included in privacy notices and when they must be issued
  • Review the rights of individuals under the GDPR, including changes to data subject access requests
  • Discuss the new obligations on data processors and the requirements for third-party contracts

The session will include interactive case studies and discussion groups.
