GDPR information sessions for staff

Message from David Nightingale, Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost:

As you may know, the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will be coming in from 25 May 2018, which will have a discernible impact on how we obtain, update and use the personal information we hold on our constituents and stakeholders. The Information Compliance team and Development Office have been preparing various processes and resources to support the University in remaining compliant and will deliver some information sessions for data users in schools and departments across the institution.

The following sessions are designed to give those working on employability, alumni relations, fundraising, recruitment and marketing, or anyone else using personal data, a chance to hear about the general ‘dos and don’ts’ and guidance going forward. Any colleague may go to any session, though, if you work in a faculty, it might be helpful to go the one specific to that faculty as any questions raised may be more pertinent.

If relevant to your role, I recommend you attend if you can. Please register below so that the organisers can ensure the room is fit for purpose. If you cannot attend a session and have concerns, you may contact the Development Office or Information Compliance team directly.
