The Data Protection Act and UK GDPR
What it means for your charity and what you can do about it
When it comes to working with the data protection principles and upholding privacy rights ask yourself this:
How do you make sure you are accountable for the actions of everyone who works with you?
How do you go about making sure people really know what you are already doing with their personal data and plan to do with it to support your charity in the future?
Do you provide inough information to inform people's decisions about whether or not to share their data with you?
It all comes down to trust.
Whether or not people trust you with their personal data. The more value associated with items of personal data, the more trust you will need if you're going to be able to use it.
How do you plan to build trust?
Working With The UK GDPR
Now that the UK GDPR is part of the Data Protection Act 2018, it's up to all of us to get on with it. If you really want to unlock the true value of the personal data available to your charity, you need to get to grips with the requirements of the regulations.
More To It Than Meets The Eye
It is complicated and challenging. The threats and issues - both online and offline (yes, we still use paper...) - need to be worked out and thought through.
You can do it yourself, of course you can! But why would you want to when a friendly, accessible, effective service exists to support you?
Letting you get on with the business of being your charity.
