On the seventh day we look at GDPR

The GDPR regulations came into effect in May 2018 which we reported on, in an earlier edition of Spotlight on Charities. The Information Commissioners Office have reported ”…most data breaches and complaints we have seen across all sectors, including charities, have been in relation to subject access requests, disclosure of data and security.”

In response they have issued advice giving their top 5 data protection tips for charities and third sector organisations covering:

  • Supporting people accessing their data
  • Keeping people’s data secure
  • Being transparent about people’s data
  • Preparing for the unexpected
  • Data protection and Brexit
