Is your charity GDPR ready?

Seminar
16 November 2017

GDPR is the biggest change to data protection legislation in over 25 years, and will affect every organisation that collects personal information from individuals. It’s vital as communicators we understand the new requirements not only to ensure we stay on the right side of the law but to meet our audiences’ expectations and to offer them a great experience.

At this seminar, we looked at what this means at a strategic and cultural level as well as what the practical implications might be for communications. We explored how the public view our usage of their personal data, how they may respond to your opt-in projects and what this all means for the experience we offer our supporters.
