The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that comes into
force on 25 May 2018 will affect all third sector organisations
that store and process the personal data of beneficiaries,
financial donors, staff and volunteers.
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.
GDPR Resources for third sector organisations
New GDPR resources for the sector will be available soon.
WCVA is producing a range of new bite-size information resources
and templates to support organisations with GDPR compliance.
The resources include an information sheet, web
page and an animated short film (coming soon) that will cover
the key changes to data protection law.
We are also delighted to be working with the law firm, Hugh
James, on the development of a suite of GDPR compliant templates
that third sector organisations will be able to adapt to their own
requirements. These will include model data protection and document
retention policies, privacy notices, and checklists for data
protection audits and privacy impact assessments.
Keep an eye on WCVA's newsletter and website for updates on when
the resources become available and remember to view our series
of #Desktopdata webinars below to help you prepare for
