Whether your interest is the UK GDPR, governance, fundraising or technology there will be something in this webinar for you, as your DPO or nominated person should be a great resource to keep you safe and help you deliver even more impact.
Every organisation needs to have sufficient leadership and oversight in place for data protection.
For some, this means appointing a Data Protection Officer (“DPO”), a role with specific responsibilities and the authority, support and resources to be effective. Even if you don’t need to formally appoint a DPO, you need to assign responsibility for data protection compliance and have sufficient staff and resources in place.
The requirement for a formal DPO, and how to discharge your responsibilities with or without one, is a very common question and so in this free webinar on Friday 22nd October, we will offer practical and cost-effective advice covering:
- What is the role of a DPO?
- Do you need to formally appoint a DPO?
- If you do, how can you find one you can trust?
- If you don’t need to formally appoint a DPO, what must you do?
We will also look at the responsibilities of trustees in relation to data protection, and share some models for data protection compliance that help you stay safe whilst minimising the costs
Finally, we will give you an update on the latest UK government consultation ‘Data: A New Direction’ and describe the implications it may have for DPO’s, and more generally.
As always everything will be related back to the best practice, the UK GDPR and ICO guidance including their newly updated Accountability Framework, and there will be links to free resources to help you.
There will be time for a Q&A at the end of the webinar, and you can submit specific questions in advance.
