Data Protection Training (the new General Data Protection Regulation 2016)

Have you been affected by the recent TalkTalk data breach for which the ICO issued a record fine of £400k?

Do you deal with any personal data in the course of your work? If so, you need to know more about the General Data Protection Regulation (the Regulation) and how it applies to your role at the University? The training is being provided to protect members, the University and ultimately the individual’s whose personal data we process. No-one wants to be involved in a breach or information security incident!

Come to our next training session for a ‘whistle-stop’ tour of your rights and responsibilities as a member of staff.

This event provides an overview of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation and includes specific topics of interest to colleagues e.g. e-marketing, and new requirements for consent and privacy notices.

Facilitated by:
Diana Watt, Information Governance Manager
Aimi Richmond (governance Adviser (Records Management)

Duration: 1 hour (plus an additional half hour added for those requiring CCTV training)

Who should attend:

All staff members are expected to attend an initial training session and a refresher session every two years.

Main description:

As every member of staff processes personal data, all staff need to know about the University’s compliance obligations and ensure they are equipped to deal with those arising in their role/area.

This event will cover the following topics:

  • The new penalty regime

  • Expanded definition of personal data (data you didn’t consider to be ‘personal’ e.g. IP addresses, may now be included, which means you need to provide appropriate security and handling measures to it)

  • Requirements to demonstrate compliance and accountability

  • Privacy by design

  • Expanded data subject rights

  • New requirements for consent and expanded privacy notices

  • What to do when sharing data

  • Reviewing all contracts where data is shared and where data is processed outside the EEA

  • How do we plan for implantation and what we can do now.


 Current/topical issues will be included in these interactive sessions and there will be opportunities for Qs & As. Links to comprehensive advice and guidance and actions to follow up after a briefing session will also be provided.

General Data Protection Regulation 2016

The Regulation imposes strict requirements on any staff members processing personal data relating to students, other staff and third parties. The University can be fined up to €20M or 4% of annual global turnover if we get it seriously wrong. The emphasis of this session will be on the practical application of the Act and will include:

• A basic outline of the Act and its requirements
• An overview of your responsibilities when processing personal data
• Practical guidance on how you are to comply with the Act

Session outcomes for participants are to:

• Be clear about their responsibilities under the new Regulation
• Recognise the practical data protection issues and risks in their area
• Know where to go for advice & guidance
