Website: Member360
Member360 is a consultancy that supports a range of charities, trade bodies and associations throughout the UK; delivering informed advice for the sector’s key challenges and opportunities.

The ongoing focus is the current hot topic – GDPR regulation. In this area Member360 is advising a number of clients via differing models of support, which, combined; represent 1.5 million members.

As lead consultant Paul has 15 years of project and programme management experience coupled with over two years informed & accredited GDPR regulation insight. Advice and guidance is available for what member organisations need to do to get their people, processes and technology in a state of readiness for the GDPR journey.

Paul Dawson-Hart writes GDPR related blogs, hosts GDPR events throughout the UK and is currently working on product development with a number of software providers in the sector to deliver membership focused solutions/platforms for the challenges ahead.

If you need external help and steering on your journey to ‘GDPR readiness’ Member360 offer an external GDPR programme manager service with a variety of models to suit your organisation and the resource, if any, you are able to dedicate.

The service is underpinned by the newly updated British Standard BS10012:2017 PIMS (Personal Information Management System) which acts a gap analysis for GDPR readiness, alongside a suite of membership focused templated GDPR policies, procedures and form which integrate into your ISMS (Information security management system), if you have one.

Remember, GDPR shouldn’t be approached with a single lens view, consideration is needed across processes, technology, data and people. Although GDPR is more an evolution in Data Protection, rather than a revolution; it’s still a business change programme, impacting the entire organisation from Marketing to HR, Finance to Facilities and throughout your supply chain.
