Welcome to the Community
GDPR Community aims to be a helpful resource for anyone with an interest in data protection and has a passion for learning/sharing their knowledge.
As the world evolves and we become more connected, so does the use of our data for interactions. This data is valuable and should be protected. In 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation was put in place to provide precedence for good practice and security of data of people located in Europe.
The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy of European citizens personal information. This includes the transfer of personal data outside of Europe. It primarily aims to give control to individuals over their personal data.
Organisations that hold such data should be compliant to the law and Individuals (data subjects) should be happy their data is processed lawfully and in a secure manner. GDPR Community provides a space for discussion around the legislation.
As a resource for data protection professionals, we share views, thoughts and opinions via our blogs and our forums. If you're interested in learning more about data protection, please sign up and join the community. We'd love your contribution!

Represent the Community!
GDPR Community wanted to give back to the community that helps make it what it is.
GDPR Community supports data protection careers through recruitment.
Organisations want to protect their data and who better than someone in our professional community to help. The community is made up of some amazing talent and we thought we could leverage it to help support organisations. Community members can apply their knowledge and represent GDPR Community in the good fight on data protection.
Let's try working together!
GDPR Community started as a group on LinkedIn in 2018 as a place for data protection professionals to network and share their knowledge.
As the group grew so did the content/resource and experiences shared. We had had some amazing insights and wanted to keep the contributions in a safe place and to be able to share them.
This inspired the creation of the dedicated website for the community. We added the Blogs which shared the latest data protection news and created the podcast.
As organisations approached requesting assistance, we saw an opportunity to give back to the community through recruitment. GDPR Community promotes its members in data protection roles through recruitment.
GDPR Community continues to grow as a resource for data protection professionals and continues to abide by its strong values. Read more about GDPR Community Values here
