Data protection good practice guide

Charity Finance Group has produced a good practice guide for charities on data protection, with support from a steering group of CFG members, the Information Commissioner’s Office and solicitors Bates Wells Braithwaite. ‘Protecting data, protecting people: A guide for charities’ takes account of variations in the way the sector operates and explains what data protection means in the charity context.

Civil Society Media has a report on the launch, which says that “People who report data protection issues to the Information Commissioner’s Office do not make a distinction between commercial organisations and charities”,
