To help you prepare, WCVA in conjunction with the ICO
(Information Commissioner's Office) will be holding free monthly
webinars from May 2017 focussing on data protection.
Our #DesktopData sessions take place from the comfort of your
own computer and will cover topics such as:
- Direct marketing
- Privacy by design
- Cyber security
- Subject Access Requests
Plus there'll be opportunities for you to decide future themes
by telling us what it is you need to know.
What is GDPR?
GDPR is a 21st century approach to data protection, it aims to
provide more protection for individuals and therefore more privacy
obligations for organisations. Help protect privacy and avoid
potential fines by signing up to our webinars and keeping your
organisation up to speed.
Coming up - GDPR........ One month to go!
This will be the final session in our
#Desktopdata series of webinars.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the ICO for
working with WCVA to help the third sector in Wales prepare for
GDPR, especially to Bethan Bonsall for presenting the monthly
