NICVA has been working closely with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) to help inform the sector about and prepare the sector for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) taking effect from 25 May 2018.
NICVA welcomes the joint guidance on GDPR released by Institute of Fundraising (IoF) and the Fundraising Regulator (FR) and reviewed and co-badged by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Almost 6,000 charities are now registered with the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland and as such, must adhere to the reporting requirements for all registered charities.
NICVA has launched a Viewfinder survey to members in order to assess their data governance and security. The results will be used to help us ensure members are fully supported with these issues when preparing for GDPR.
