Data protection, information security and cake

Tuesday 24th May 2022 at 14:00 GMT

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 4 years now since the ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ (GDPR) took effect in 2018. So much has happened since then – the UK left the EU, Covid happened and we went into lockdown with video calls and working from home suddenly becoming commonplace. In this session we will discuss the data protection and information security risks that have become more prevalent during recent times, the areas where organisations should now be focusing their attention, and the measures that should be taken to ensure that your organisation’s data remains safe, secure and managed in accordance with good practice.

Data strategy and cake

Wednesday 2nd February 2022 at 14:00 GMT

Online virtual event

£0.00    100

Data has been called “the new oil” and – whatever one thinks about that analogy, organisations across the not-for-profit sector are becoming increasingly aware of the need to make the most of this precious resource – and the opportunities that it could bring – bringing our organisations closer to our supporters or members, delivering more tailored, personalised experiences and services. However, these opportunities come with risks – how can we best leverage the best from our data, but at the same time keep it secure and manage it safely, in an increasingly digital, online world?

Online virtual event

£0.00    100

In response to recent challenges brought on by the pandemic, our sector was forced to innovate at speed, and find new ways – often using digital tools – to engage with stakeholders. In this session we touched upon some of these experiences, reflecting back on how the non-profit sector has responded to the challenges, and considered what the ‘new new normal’ might look like. Which of these digital innovations - driven by the response to the challenges of the last 18 months – will stick; and what might this mean in terms of our future digital strategies?

Online virtual event

Projects are about change. Whether you are changing systems, how your organisation works, or the services you deliver, you are most likely organising those changes as a project and using Project Management techniques to plan and deliver the required tasks. In this session we explored some practical considerations and techniques to incorporate Change Management into your Project Management approach, and deal with arising unforeseen Change Management challenges. Through case studies and discussion, we learned what has (or has not) worked well in other organisations, and what might help to deliver change projects.
