On 25 May the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect. It provides individuals with an extended set of rights in relation to the collection and processing of their personal data; and places an increased level of transparency and accountability on organisations.
Getting ready for the GDPR is focusing the minds of many charities and other civil society organisations, not least because time is running out (and there is no transition period).
There is a wide range of useful guidance available online, and you will find links to some of these below. But Green Pepper has produced some resources of its own that will be of use to VCSE and similar organisations. These are described here:
