CIPR publishes new GDPR resources for members

The CIPR has published a suite of exclusive resources to help public relations professionals prepare and comply with the new Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

GDPR - which comes into effect on 25 May - seeks to protect and empower citizens’ data privacy by harmonising EU data privacy laws. The legislation aims to give people more control over how organisations use their personal information. 

The following resources have been designed to provide CIPR members with clarity on the regulations and confidence in assisting clients and businesses through the change.

The resources include: 

  • Introduction to GDPR skills guide
  • GDPR glossary
  • GDPR consideration for Internal Communications
  • GDPR public task and legitimate interest guidance
  • GDPR video and photography
  • General data protection regulation and open data webinars

Members can access the resources via the CIPR's GDPR webpage. Not a member? Find out about CIPR membership here
