Technical Activities Data Privacy Resource Page

Data privacy is an increasingly important part of how companies conduct business and treat their customers. The first major regulation was the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which went into effect 25 May 2018. IEEE has updated policies and procedures to comply with the regulation and is developing guidance on what IEEE will do to comply with the regulation. Below you will find detailed information regarding your role as a Technical Activities Leader in supporting compliance activities. 

IEEE volunteers are expected to be familiar with the data privacy regulations and their responsibilities to protect and properly use personal information that is entrusted to IEEE. The links below will provide you with information to assist you. Additionally, any volunteers who have direct access to personal information, particularly IEEE Roster information, should take the IEEE Volunteer GDPR compliance course.  Information on training can be found via the link below in the “Additional Resources” section.
