Are you ready for GDPR?

Posted by rmt22 at May 15, 2018 04:30 PM |
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on the 25 May. Make sure you know what you can do to help ensure we are all ready for the new regulation.

There is much work being done centrally and across the University to prepare for GDPR. This includes documenting what we are doing with personal data (our Information Asset Register); reviewing and disposing of out-of-date files; reviewing our contracts for GDPR compliance; and developing clear guidance for staff.

It’s not too late to get involved

We can all help ensure that personal data is managed in a compliant way, including completing the online information assurance training; reviewing your files (both paper and electronic); reviewing your emails and discussing any GDPR issues with your colleagues.

Please see our What you can do to prepare for GDPR Quick Guide to find out what you can do.

Is your team ready for GDPR?

If you are a manager of a service or a team leader there are specific things that you must do to ensure that your service/team is ready for GDPR. These include reviewing the files held by your service/team, in particular locally held HR files for staff who have left your team or service; documenting what personal data your team holds and ensuring it is added to the Information Asset Register; communicating to individuals how you manage their data; and ensuring that your staff have completed the appropriate training.

Please see our Is your team ready for GDPR Quick Guide for more information.
