GDPR Compliance
for charities

Wanstor can help your business become GDPR compliant by May 2018.

We have a strong track record of protecting critical information for charities across the UK and a deep understanding of the changing data protection regulations surrounding GDPR.

GDPR is designed to give individuals better control over their personal data and establish one single set of data protection rules across Europe. It has been widely reported that over 50% of businesses in the UK will not be GDPR compliant by May 2018 unless they make significant changes to how they operate. With fines of up to 20 million euros or 4% of annual turnover businesses must act now to become GDPR compliant.

At Wanstor we are seeing many charities with GDPR challenges across 5 key areas:

Rights of EU data subjects: Charities need to provide easier access to personal data, with clear and easily understandable information on processing.

Security of personal data: Charities will now be required to report data breaches to regulatory authorities within 72 hours, and inform individuals affected.

Lawfulness and consent: Processing of personal data will be lawful only if one of the six factors GDPR lists is adhered to. Consent is one of these factors, but under the GDPR, consent will become even more difficult to demonstrate.

Accountability of compliance: Charities will be expected to demonstrate compliance with the GDPR principles relating to personal data. However many charities have yet to decide on the tools they need to show this proof to regulatory bodies.

Data protection by design: Data controllers must implement technical and business measures which demonstrate compliance with GDPR core principles, ensuring the rights of data subjects are met and that only data necessary for the specific purpose is processed.

Wanstor offers a range of solutions, services and expertise to help support your journey to GDPR readiness by May 2018, which include:

Assessments: Whether your charity has already begun a GDPR compliance project or is preparing its first moves, Wanstor can provide a GDPR assessment service which will help your charity to identify any compliance gaps and offer advice on actions which needs to take place before May 2018.

Data: We can help your charity assess what data you have, how secure it is, what your charity is using it for and consider how you can interact with donors, suppliers and partners. This is crucial for offering transparency and trust which is demanded from GDPR.

Security: We can help your charity protect its data and offer advice on proper use, notice, consent, choice, access, rectification and erasure. Additionally we can make sure your data and security strategies are aligned so your IT teams can be more effective when planning for GDPR compliance.

IT Processes: We will take a look at your existing IT and Data management processes, how GDPR will influence them, what’s the impact and how your business can manage the required changes.

People: We can train your employees on GDPR requirements, so they understand the risks and impacts of improper data usage.

Governance: We can help you determine how to translate GDPR into actions, norms and values. Consider what measures need to be taken, and help you review if they are effective.
