General Data Protection Training for Parishes and Deaneries: 3 March 2018

Date(s) - 03/03/2018
All Day

The Ridgeway Community Centre


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be coming into effect on 25 May 2018. It is the most comprehensive piece of data protection legislation to date, and it requires organizations everywhere to give individuals more control over their own personal data. What that means to us and how we can successfully comply with it can be utterly confusing, but help is at hand!

The Diocese of Oxford has offered 2 training sessions here in Milton Keynes, so hopefully you won’t have to drive to Oxford, Aylesbury, or another town! These will be held from 10am-12 noon and from 2.00-4.00pm on Saturday 3 March 2018 at the Ridgeway Community Centre, Dulverton Drive, Furzton. These will be practical sessions working with the guidance published by the Church of England, to help you understand the GDPR and adapt it for use in your own parish. Contents will include:

What is a Data Subject?

What data does your parish hold, and why?

The six reasons for holding data:
•Consent – freely given, can be withheld without detriment
•Necessary to fulfil contract
•Legal obligation
•Legitimate interest – needed for performance of main business
•Needed to protect vital interests
•Legal power/ public function

Privacy Notes – What they need to say, and where do they need to be displayed?

Data Collection forms – when is consent needed?

•Special Concerns: sensitive data
•Policy and procedures

If you haven’t booked yet, please contact Petronella Spivey at Church House Oxford, as there may be a few places left.
