A series of seminars and one-to-one sessions on Data Protection regulations run across the diocese by the Church of Ireland’s Data Protection Officer Rebekah Fozzard was well attended.
The seminars took place in Old School House, St Patrick’s, Ballymoney on Wednesday evening, June 5; Christ Church Hall, Lisburn, on Thursday afternoon, June 6; and in St Brigid’s, Mallusk, on Thursday evening.
Rebekah also hosted one-to-one sessions at the three venues. Around 100 people took advantage of the opportunity to learn more about the regulations at the seminars and one-to-one meetings.
In an engaging and informative manner, Rebekah provided her audiences with practical advice and guidance on Data Protection.
There was an opportunity for questions during the seminars which were open to diocesan staff, clergy, honorary secretaries, honorary treasurers and parish administrators.
One attendee said: “Rebekah unpacked the detail of the GDPR requirements very clearly, outlining each parish’s obligations under Data Protection law, and explaining how we can meet these requirements in the day to day life of the parish. The seminar was extremely helpful.”
