Data Protection Legislation Course in Mallow
New Data Protection legislation, called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is coming into effect in May 2018. This legislation will have significant implications for GAA Clubs and it important that all of us are aware of our responsibilities regarding data protection. In order to assist GAA Clubs to understand specifically what they must do to comply with the legislation, a number of Data Protection seminars are scheduled during March, one in each Province. The seminars will start at 7:00 PM and will last approximately 2.5 hours. Please note that the Seminars are a repeat of the one held in Croke Park at the end of last year - if you attended that session, you do not need to re-attend, but you are welcome to do so if you so wish. This Seminar is intended for Club officials who will are actively involved in the process of collecting, processing and storing information relating to members on an ongoing basis. This may be the club Registrar or the Secretary or another volunteer and it will vary from club to club. Please bring this event to the attention of the relevant person in your club.
The agenda will cover a range of topics and will specifically address the following:
• An overview of Data Protection legislation
• Specific changes arising from GDPR
• Tools and supports available to help Clubs:
• Data Protection Officer
The Munster seminar will be held on March 22nd in Mallow GAA Club, Cork at 7pm.
