Fans & data protection: Is your group ready for change in the law?

Keyboard Photo Marco Verch

Later this year there will be changes to the laws governing data and how organisations protect the data they hold on their members - and this could have implications for supporter organisations up and down the country.

Fear not, however, as our chairman and Information Tribunal member Malcolm Clarke has written a short introduction to the changes and what you need to know.

Most well-run fan groups don't have much to worry about but we reckon it'll be a helpful resource for making sure you and your supporter group are prepared for the introduction of theĀ General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May.

We're also consulting with industry experts to produce more comprehensive resources for supporter organisations in the near future - so watch this space!
