The new GDPR legislation intends to make data protection laws consistent across EU nations and to implement more contemporary legislation, with many existing laws insufficient to protect against data usage on social media and the volumes of data now available to organisations
Your organisation should already be compliant with the existing Data Protection Act 1998 legislation and the GDPR builds on this. ‘This is evolution not revolution’.
Below are some resources to give you some guidance:
Community Action Suffolk
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)
GDPR guidance from the Charity Commission (4 May 2018)
National Cyber Security Centre
