February is GDPR Month at ACO!

During February ACO is preparing for the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) a new, Europe-wide law that replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) in the UK from 25th May 2018.

What we are doing:

  • We have conducted an extensive member survey and asked members for their questions to be put to our expert speakers at the next Grant Making Forum.
  • We have created a dedicated GDPR website page containing: Special Report and ICARIS Guest article (both included in this month's newsletter), and a series of briefings over the course of the month including "GDPR for Funders & Grant Makers - FAQ" sample Privacy Notice, scenario "ACO's journey to GDPR compliance", "Key Findings from ACO Members Survey on GDPR", videos of speakers and presentations to the next Grant Making Forum.
  • ACO provides a free telephone helpline service from ICARIS Sentinel. It is available to ACO members for general queries concerning Data Protection in the UK. The Helpline is open on weekdays between 9am and 5pm, excluding bank holidays. Initial consultation via the Helpline is limited to 15 minutes. The purpose of the Helpline is to give general assistance based only on the background information that you provide during a call, to help you to deal with general queries or identify areas where further work or professional advice may be required and continued availability of the ACO member Data Protection helpline.
