If your organisation processes personal data, you must be UK GDPR compliant. This applies to organisations of all sizes and structures.

This webinar will give you a quick overview of key elements you should be aware of. It will also explore the consequences if regulation is not met.

Hope & May will share case studies to help bring GDPR and data protection to life. You’ll have the chance to ask questions and get advice from experts at the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and Hope & May.


By the end of the event, you’ll:

  • be clear on the definition of personal data
  • understand the importance and benefits of data protection for charities
  • identify special category data and what extra protection is needed
  • learn about privacy notices and subject access requests
  • understand data sharing in relation to safeguarding
  • consider personal data breaches
  • apply data protection principles to direct marketing.
