NICVA has partnered with leading compliance firm, Legal-Island, to offer its member organisations cost-effective online training on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

GDPR will be enforced from 25 May 2018, organisations need to make changes to their practice and policies to ensure that they comply with the new requirements and this online training provides an accessible way to inform staff and volunteers of what GDPR means for them.  It is important that organisations take action to ensure people’s personal data is protected and respected.

Legal-Island are offering NICVA members a reduced rate for the training course until Thursday 31st May 2018.  Seamus McAleavey, NICVA Chief Executive said:

NICVA are delighted to collaborate with Legal-Island in providing our members with access to cost effective online GDPR Compliance training. We look forward to working with them.

With GDPR enforcement less than 2 months away, this agreement comes at an opportune time. ”

Barry Phillips, Legal-Island’s Chairman stated:

“Our GDPR eLearning course is significant for the third sector in Northern Ireland, particularly as we approach the enforcement date of 25th May 2018. Organisations can train all staff and volunteers much more quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. The online training also includes an assessment and comes with its own audit trail to provide organisations with evidence of course completion which they can point to when working with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Covering the six principles of GDPR, data security, subject access requests and what to do in the event of a data breach, this course will upskill staff and reduce the potential of fines imposed by the ICO. Partnering with NICVA is very exciting because it allows us to roll out the training to many organisations very quickly. It’s a win win for NICVA, their member organisations and Legal-Island.”
