Good Data Protection compliance is not just a legal obligation; it also demonstrates that an organisation takes a responsible attitude to the information it holds about the people it works for, the people it works with and the people who support the work.

Now that things have settled down it is a good opportunity to review the position, identify any gaps, learn from experience and consolidate your Data Protection practice.

Who should come (orgs / people / roles)
The course does not require any prior knowledge of Data Protection. It is most suitable for people who have some responsibility for Data Protection, either at the organisational level (especially if they have been designated the organisation’s Data Protection Lead) or as a team or department manager. Fundraisers, communications officers, database managers and people with a compliance role should find it particularly useful.

Paul has been one of the leading experts on Data Protection in the voluntary sector for over 20 years. From a background in IT when computers were first being introduced to voluntary organisations, he moved into information management and then specialised in Data Protection. He has worked with local and national organisations throughout the UK, of all sizes and in many different fields, to promote best practice in the way they acquire and handle the personal data of their clients, service users, donors, supporters, members, paid staff and volunteers.
For several years Paul has been following the progress of the General Data Protection Regulation through the EU and sharing his understanding with people in the sector. He has also commented extensively on the recent changes in the Information Commissioner's approach to regulating fundraising and marketing, and on the activities of the Fundraising Regulator.
