Event Description:


Somerset Chamber of Commerce in association with Miles Phillips Consulting, invite our charity members to this free​ half-day workshop

GDPR is coming into force on 25th May 2018, and all organisations will be expected to adhere to the guidelines with immediate effect. The last few years have seen a changed attitude to how personal data is obtained and used.  With changing technology and modernisation, there is a greater awareness of how using personal data can go wrong.  As a result, the demand for personal information to be appropriately looked after has become a significant consideration for organisations and individuals alike.

 
Topics that will be covered include the key principles of the DPA 1998 and how the introduction of GDPR affects this. The role of the Fundraising Regulator and the ICO.  An overview of the Fundraising Preference Service and the resulting obligations of charities. Delegates will also be signposted to simple toolkits and resources that include;

  •   Self-Audit

  •   Data Protection Online Self-Assessment

  •   Case Studies

  •   Checklists

The course will be delivered by Marsha Miles, MInstF (Dip) & Jane Phillips, MInstF, MBA.  Marsha and Jane own Miles Phillips Consulting Ltd and have 32 years experience in the not-for-profit sector between them.
