In today's digital age, associations handle a large amount of personal data, ranging from member information to financial records. Holding this data comes with important concerns around privacy and security. To protect both the association and its members, it is essential you understand the key considerations.

This online seminar will cover the critical issues of information rights and what to do if data is compromised, as well as best practices for data collection and use.

You will come away with a clear understanding of the importance of data protection for associations, and the steps they can take to ensure that their data is secure.
