General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - Survey

The upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) signals a new generation of data privacy laws that commands a major shift for many charities, religious orders and not-for-profits.  This new legislation will impact how these organisations use data.  Charities Institute Ireland believes that this legislation will enable religious orders, charities and not-for-profits to appropriately balance collaboration and transparency with data protection and privacy, supporting them in their work with donors and beneficiaries to bring about a culture of engagement and giving that is progressively seen as a welcome opportunity to express one’s values and support for these organisations and not an intrusion on privacy.

Charities Institute Ireland has devised a survey to examine the readiness of Irish charities, religious orders and not-for-profits towards GDPR, to benchmark key operational impacts and assess the difficulty in complying to the new regulations.  Your feedback will enable Charities Institute Ireland to plan on how best to assist you in your preparation for and compliance with GDPR.
