ICO less likely to fine charities for data breaches if they show staff training. A marketer's guide to the looming EU Global Data Protection Regulation. GDPR processor clauses and why they can't wait - Privacy, Security and Information Law Fieldfisher. Most compliance professionals and in-house lawyers will be well aware that in GDPR terms the 'big day' is fast approaching.
Some boards may by now have been persuaded this really should be at the top and not the bottom of the risk register. Others may be taking a more 'wait and see' approach ie wait and see who actually gets fined and how much. Then there will be a few who wasted no time, got their GDPR readiness plan in place and are already well on their way to passing the 25 May 2018 finishing line with 'GDPR star' status.
If, like many, you are still pondering where to even begin on the journey to GDPR star status - start with your contracts! The GDPR introduces far more stringent obligations to be imposed in writing on data processors than current data protection laws in Europe. This means that for any new processor contracts you are negotiating that will run beyond 25 May 2018, these clauses need to go into the contract now. As they say, a stitch in time saves nine …. GDPR for the boardroom. Will GDPR Change the World? event. IntroductionThank you.
Let me take a moment to thank TechUK for putting together this event and for offering me the platform to speak with you this morning.Our Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, has been clear that the ICO’s vision – of increasing data trust and confidence among the UK public – can only be achieved by working in partnership with the private, public and third sectors.An important part of that is developing key relationships with representative or umbrella organisations as multipliers and amplifiers for our engagement with different constituencies.
Dentons Boekel - GDPR Update: Rights of the data subjects (information notices) Data watchdogs called on to clarify organisations duties on consent under GDPR. One of the ways in which organisations can lawfully process personal data is where they have obtained a person's consent to do so.
Stakeholders from business groups, civil society and academia urged the watchdogs to explain whether organisations need a person's consent "for every single processing operation", or whether a more general consent can be obtained for "every purpose" of processing they intend to engage in, according to notes from an April GDPR workshop hosted by officials from a committee of data protection watchdogs, the Article 29 Working Party. Data protection authorities were also asked to clarify whether businesses will be free, under GDPR, to set out recommended privacy settings if they "still require an affirmative action from the user in order to choose" how their data is used.
The mechanisms by which consent can be obtained, and the issue of whether existing consents need renewed, also need to be clarified, the stakeholders said. The GDPR “General Data Protection Regulation” Daily. Opt in versus opt out. Two letters from the regulator. Worry 1 Fundraising regulation may seem boring and complicated but it’s also massively important.
Charities can’t afford not to get this right. Recently, at a meeting of leading fundraising directors, one of the assembled group said, ‘My job now is managing decline’. About one third of the gathered FRDs agreed with him, slightly more did not, with the others undecided. At the time, I thought he was being overly pessimistic. The drift to ‘opt in’ has had me fearing he may not be far wrong. Worry 2 I’ve long hailed the late Mrs Olive Cooke as a potential patron saint for fundraisers. Many hoped it would push our sector towards a renewed realisation of its responsibilities to donors, leading to a timely overhaul of fundraising practices, in turn stimulating new promises to donors and the prospect of a consistently improved donor experience. Premature reaction to impending regulatory changes had me fearing fundraising might be irreparably damaged before that change has time to take effect.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Enterprise Technology Landscape « Thoughts from the Systems front line.... Recently at the London Metropolitan University, hosted by the students Union, I presented an example in which the introduction of new legislation would impact my version of the Enterprise Architectural Stack.

'Charities should not feel pressured into opt-in model under GDPR', says DMA. The Direct Marketing Association has said that focusing purely on a fully opted-in consent model for fundraising is “not totally necessary” under GDPR, as it is only one of six legal grounds on which personal data can be processed.
Speaking at the Institute of Fundraising Technology Conference in London on Friday, John Mitchison, head of preference services, compliance and legal at the Direct Marketing Association, said it was “not totally necessary” for charities to focus purely on consent in order to process data under the new General Data Protection Regulation. Mitchison said he had spoken to a number of charities who “feel that they are being pressured to go down this fully consent road”, but pointed out that consent is only one of six legal grounds on which personal data can be processed under GDPR, and that “no one is any better than the other”. “It’s important to point out that consent is only one of the legal grounds on which you can process personal data.

ICO: Open banking 'a key way' for banks to meet data portability duties under the GDPR. In a response (4-page / 224KB PDF) to a Treasury consultation on the implementation of the revised EU Payment Services Directive (PSD2) in the UK, the ICO urged firms involved in facilitating open banking to engage with it on the project, and highlighted the potential open banking has for aiding compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
"We encourage industry to maintain an open dialogue as it designs and implements an open API standard," the ICO said. "The information commissioner views open banking as a key way in which individuals’ rights to data portability under article 20 of GDPR may be given practical effect, and it should therefore help financial institutions meet their data portability obligations. " Those data portability obligations only apply to data controllers that process personal data based on customer consent or to perform a contract involving the data subject and if the processing takes place by "automated means".

Beware of the phish – how to stay ahead of the scammers. Targeted phishing emails and other online scams aimed at law firms are becoming ever more sophisticated. With the imminent arrival of the General Data Protection Regulation in May 2018, spotting the warning signs is more imperative than ever – and non-compliance is simply not an option, says Peter Wright Phishing emails are fraudulent emails appearing to come from legitimate sources.
They often direct you to a facsimilie of a trusted website (like a bank’s) or entice you to open a legitimately-named attachment, or otherwise get you to divulge private information. This is then used by cybercriminals to commit identity theft. Targeted phishing emails now look ever more genuine. Don't assume that because an email is internal it is safe – I have heard of some firms' email account servers being compromised to the point where internal emails have been hijacked.

VOIP services should be considered for your business communications Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) is one of the oldest business technologies in the market – yet, it hasn’t gone the way of the floppy disk and typewriters.
At the inception, VOIP was too much of a hassle because it requires both parties on the call to be online on a computer. More so, the call quality on VOIP calls of old was poor with broken messages, rapid interruptions and loss of service – worst part is that those calls were expensive. However, upgrades in the ISP infrastructure, improvement in data services and cheaper access to the Internet has provided a quantum leap in VOIP services in the last couple of years. In 2013, a market research report showed that there were more than 640 million VOIP subscribers worldwide. In essence, VOIP services are starting to occupy an important place in communications due to the upsurge in the use of residential and business VOIP services. Cheaper solution for making calls.
