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 - Data Sharing
Organisations are required to collect and share personal data in
a way that is fair, transparent and in line with the rights and
expectations of the people whose information you are sharing.
This webinar will help you to identify the issues you need to
consider when deciding whether to share personal data. It
should give you confidence to share personal data when it is
appropriate to do so but should also give you an understanding of
when it is not acceptable to share personal data.
The next session in our #DesktopData series will be held
at 2pm on Tuesday, 23 January 2018.
To sign up for a webinar please email firstname.lastname@example.org to
register your interest.
If there are any specific topics you would like us to consider
covering please get in touch with your suggestions.
