The EU’s new data protection regulation, GDPR, takes effect on May 25, 2018. Both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations will have to comply with the new regulations or face significant fines. The GDPR will affect certain not-for-profit organizations that collect personal information from citizens of the EU.
Since donor, supporter, and volunteer data collection is vital to not-for-profit organizations, it is extremely important to have policies and procedures in place to ensure the organization is GDPR compliant. John DeMarzo, a member of our Cybersecurity team, shares an explanation of GDPR and how to comply in his article, “What companies need to know about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)”
Keiter has developed a GDPR-focused cybersecurity risk assessment program and can help benchmark your compliance and develop the policies and procedures your organization needs to comply.
