Field Notes in Philanthropy

Episode 4: That's a Lot of Letters

  The European Union is about to set the bar for digital data privacy. On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect, giving internet users in the EU broad powers to monitor and control how organizations and businesses keep, manage, and use their personal data.

 What’s more, the GDPR gives EU citizens rights to their data wherever it’s held – even if that’s in the United States. And in an era when organizations like Facebook and Cambridge Analytica are dominating headlines because of their misuse of personal data, the GDPR poses some compelling questions for U.S. privacy laws, nonprofit data management, and philanthropy in a global age. Jason Bryce, Head of Risk and Compliance with the UK-based Charities Aid Foundation, joins the hosts for perspective.
