General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Monday, February 19, 2018 - 12:15

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new, Europe-wide law that replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK.

The GDPR sets out requirements for how organisations will need to handle personal data from 25 May 2018.

LGBT Consortium urges all Members to spend some time before that date, if they havent done so already, to take stock of what information their group collects (and how it holds that information) from and about employees, volunteers, service users, members, supporters and donors. 

It can seem complicated but it's really important that you make sure your group is compliant. 

Our friends at NCVO have created a useful guide: How To Prepare For GDPR And Data Protection Reform which you can find here and they have a great range of resources, videos and guides available here

The Information Commissioner’s Office have also produced: Guide to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and have highlighted 8 Data protection principles to guide your organsiation in becoming complient.
