Scarborough: General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) training – EVENT FULL
February 21 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT. We will be adding additional GDPR training courses in other venues around Yorkshire due to the high demand. Sign up to our email newsletter or follow us on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to hear about new training courses as they are arranged.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are new rules that will come into force in May 2018 and will apply to any organisation, no matter how large or small, that collects, stores or processes any kind of information about people anywhere in the European Union.
This half-day training course will give you the tools you need to be confident that your organisation is ready for the new regulations!
The course will cover questions such as:
- How do the GDPR differ from the current Data Protection Act?
- What is a Data Controller and what are their responsibilities?
- What data are we allowed to have and what permission do we need to have it?
- How do we need to update our data protection policies and procedures to comply with the new regulations?
- What sources of support and guidance are available to help us?
And plenty more, with the opportunity to discuss your concerns and experiences and ask any questions you might have!
This course is aimed at Trustees or Directors, or those key staff or volunteers, who have or are likely to have responsibility for ensuring that their organisation complies with the new regulations. Please note that we only have space for up to two people from any one organisation to attend.
Book your place here.

Scarborough YMCA is on St Thomas Street in the centre of Scarborough. Unfortunately there is no car parking on site but there is plenty of on-street car parking in the area and several council-run car parks nearby. The venue is a ten minute walk from the railway station and main bus station, and local bus services stop on St Thomas Street itself.
The course will be delivered by James Russell, Development Officer at Community First Yorkshire (tel 01904 704177). Please get in touch if you have any questions.
