The Charity Finance Group (CFG) has published a free guide to help voluntary organisations comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Produced in partnership with Buzzacott, Crowe Clarke Whitehill and Kingston Smith, the guide is split into five parts governance, fundraising data, financial data, beneficiary data and employee data.
The guide is aimed at anyone with responsibility for data management within their charity, from trustees, to finance directors, to volunteers.
Nicki Deeson, CFG chair, says in the guide’s introduction: “Data protection is a core area of a charity’s operations and the implementation of the GDPR by the European Union in May 2018 means that charities need to understand and implement regulation effectively and efficiently.
“I hope this guide provides practical advice and concrete methods to support organisations to work towards achieving best practice in data protection.”
