About the Event

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply from 25 May 2018, significantly enhancing the requirements under the current Data Protection Act.   Housing associations and co-operatives need to ensure that they undertake the correct preparation well in advance of the GDPR coming into force, and have the right processes in place.   But what does this involve?

This is one of three events SFHA will be running to look at the GDPR in depth and provide an extensive overview of the new requirements.  

The other events will be held on

27 September 2017 - Edinburgh

17 November 2017 - Aberdeen


Benefits of Attending

These events will enable delegates to gain an understanding of what the GDPR will mean in practice for RSLs. Each event will be facilitated by experts in data matters, over two detailed and interactive sessions.
