Ethical and Responsible Data Usage – considerations for small charities

14/10/2020 @ 14:00 - 16:00

About this Event: A couple of years ago we will all have reviewed our data collection and data usage in terms of compliance with the incoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). But as small charities and community groups, often working with a range of vulnerable client groups and collecting personal sensitive data, there may be more to think about than just the legalities.

What will be covered:

  • GDPR principles and legal basis for data processing (a brief review)
  • Research ethics appropriate for small charities
  • Other Responsible data use considerations
  • Informed consent
  • Data sharing

The session will be interactive so come prepared to discuss issues you are facing within your organisation. They will also be sharing some practical templates for you to take back to your organisation and use when planning future projects and related data usage.

Is this course for me?: This course is for anyone who works for a small charity or community group in London and wants to check they are following best practice when working with their data. Participants will need to join from a laptop or PC to participate in the hands on exercises using templates shared during the session.
