“Let’s raise the bar on data privacy and make the Internet safer.” With the imminent arrival of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), this was one of the points raised by Todd M. Tolbert, our Chief Administrative Officer, in an episode of the Non-Profit Tech Podcast published yesterday. Hosted by fusionSpan’s Justin Burniske, the 35-minute episode covered a wide range of topics, including:
- the difference between data privacy and data protection
- Todd’s thinking about the value the GDPR brings in terms of thinking about data
- mistakes organizations make with regard to handling their data
- resources for organizations to do more
- how you can’t be liable for data that you don’t have in the first place
- asking the question… do you really need to keep those 700 email addresses that no longer work?
And, of course, Todd being who he is, there were some Texan things mixed in to the conversation as well. I very much enjoyed the episode and found it a useful contribution to the ongoing privacy discussions that tomorrow’s GDPR deadline has generated.
Some of the resources Todd shared included:
- Online Trust Alliance’s Online Trust Audit and Honor Roll
- Online Trust Alliance’s Cyber Incident & Breach Response Resources
- American Society of Association Executives’ GDPR Resources
- International Association of Privacy Professionals
I would also encourage you to view our articles and resources related to privacy.

FYI, as Todd as written previously, he’s been leading our efforts on GDPR compliance, and also serves as our Data Privacy Officer (DPO).
