Non profit organisations need to comply with data protection laws. If you’re responsible for a non profit you need to learn about data protection for non profits and the laws that apply to you. This will enable you to lawfully source funding, process your donors and beneficiaries’ personal data, and even your employees and suppliers’ personal data. Personal information is a valuable asset for different organisations, including non profits. Your data protection compliance will ensure that you can continue to process that crucial information and carry out your non profit’s functions.
We have done extensive work with different organisations, helping them become compliant by equipping them with the tools and knowledge they need. We have researched and found the specific ways that non profits require assistance in creating awareness and complying with data protection laws.
There is so much information available on complying with data protection laws that it’s hard to know where to start. We help you navigate your way around this information to distil the steps you can take that will most likely impact you. We’ve called this our Data Protection for non profits lens. The lens takes all the insights we’ve provided in our main data protection compliance programme (a programme that’s typically meant for bigger and different organisations) and distils it into a manageable size for non profits.
