Data Protection and GDPR

Share this page

Protection of data, both personal and commercial, is a key consideration for any organisation. For universities, safeguarding student and employee personal data is critical to ensure continued trust in the institution.

Creation, transmission, storage and retention of data, in any format, is a complex area and one which is increasingly under the spotlight from regulators and the media. The General Data Protection Regulation which comes into force in May 2018 raises the bar significantly - creating heightened accountability; together with a need for clearer consent processes; faster handling of subject access requests; and clearer contracts with third parties; all against the backdrop of potentially significantly increased penalties.

We have specialist knowledge and experience available to help universities comply with relevant legislation and protect this valuable resource; and to provide a healthcheck of progress towards GDPR compliance.
