Hundreds of sector professionals benefited from attending the webinar and learning from the expertise of both Richard and Naomi. We were inundated with your questions before the webinar and tried our best to cover as much about the topic as possible.

For those who missed the Webinar, below is an overview of the topic that was covered:

The GDPR law changes surround the public data that organisations hold and what they do with that data and will impact the museums and heritage sector. Whether you hold a mailing list of only 50 people or simply store a list of your donors, you will need to make sure that you are adhering to these new guidelines or a penalty fine could be applied.

The Webinar was designed to help you work out how the changes would impact your organisation. We were very fortunate to have Richard Sisson, Senior Policy Officer, Policy and Engagement (Private and Third Sector) at the Information Commissioner’s Office and Naomi Korn, data expert and consultant running this webinar with us and they were able to answer some of the questions we received.

The webinar covered:

– The Data protection Act – what it is and why it is in place. Did you know it is a legal requirement? Are you complying? Did you know Accreditation is reliant upon compliance of this?

– GDPR and what implications this will have on the already existing Data Protection Act

– Compliance framework

– 12 steps from the ICO on how to comply

– Do you need a Data Protection Officer?

– Simple ways to embed good data protection procedures into your working environment eg in your HR policy and your Social Media policy.
