Charities hold sensitive information about their beneficiaries, employees/volunteers and donors, so it’s important for charities to manage this data appropriately and protect themselves from the threat of security breaches.

The Responsible Persons of a charity (the board or committee) need to be aware of the legal requirements of managing information and data, as well as the community’s expectations.

The resources below set out the relevant legislation, and provide practical guidance on how charity’s can protect the important information and data they hold.
