Is your organisation’s data protection up to scratch?


In May 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect. Organisations need to start planning now to make sure they are fully compliant when the new regulation is implemented.

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.  

With only one month to go we will be recapping on the key areas that charities should have covered ahead of GDPR.

Please tune in to find out more and present your questions to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).

The session will take place at 2pm on Tuesday, 24 April 2018. 

To sign up please email to register your interest.  

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 sessions and to Helen Thomas who delivered the Subject Access Request webinar in October.

Also a big thank you to everyone who signed up and joined us on the preparing for GDPR journey.
