Protecting Your Charity’s Data

18 February 2016

Your charity holds a wealth of personal data about individuals; from staff and volunteers to supporters and end clients. This information is subject to the Data Protection Act.

The Information Commissioner’s Office has already started an investigation into how the voluntary sector manages data and can impose fines of up to £500,000 for serious breaches of the Act.

In addition, the increasing risk of cyber attack and serious organised crime is as relevant and concerning to charities as it is to any business – the voluntary sector may be seen as a soft target because of a perceived lack of security.

Accepting responsibility for protecting your data is inescapable nowadays, but whose job is it to ensure its safety?

Third Sector Insight has teamed up with Protective Intelligence – security specialists with long-standing experience in helping organisations in both the public and private sectors keep their data safe. By completing this survey, which is in the strictest confidence, we want to find out what you know about how your charity’s data is protected.

The survey will take no more than 10 minutes of your time – and as a thank you, we will enter you into a prize draw for a pair of West End theatre tickets.

* In taking part in this survey you agree to our terms and conditions, to view these click here. Entries for the survey and prize draw close 31st March 2016.
