How to use the Data Protection Act 2018 alongside the GDPR by Hannah Flynn — last modified Sep 20, 2018 02:30 PM
In all the hyperbole surrounding the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) it may have been easy to miss the UK passing its own updated data protection legislation – the  Data Protection Act 2018  (the Act). This came into force at the same time as GDPR on 25th May and replaces the Data Protection Act 1998. The GDPR allowed individual EU states some flexibility to add their own detail in relation to specific areas. The Act fills in some of those gaps as well as bringing the GDPR into UK law.

How to Reach a Wider Audience on Social Media by Dante Munnis — last modified Sep 18, 2018 12:51 PM

And if those visitors ultimately become customers, the social media marketing campaign is obviously working. So, exactly how do businesses grow their audience? The answer lies in two major elements: How each social media platform is utilized, and the type of content is published on those platforms

How to use more secure IT systems by Rob Brennan — last modified Sep 12, 2018 04:32 PM
Charities are as exposed as any organisation to threats to their computer systems, whether the threats are software-based – such as viruses, worms, malware and spyware in downloads or even on websites – or come from direct human intervention through hacking. Smaller charities, however, may be more exposed than most because they don’t have the investment or skills necessary to bring their IT security up to a level that is among the best. Here are some important measures that organisations should undertake, along with guidance on how enterprise-level security can be made affordable. See also the guide 'How to protect your charity with security software'  which covers the steps you can take by running anti-virus software and keeping your system files up to date.
