The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May and we are keen to help staff understand the aims and implications of GDPR (and in particular, how it will affect our daily working lives).

As such, we will be holding a second series of drop in sessions in May and June for you to find out more. They will be similar to our previous sessions back in January and will be an opportunity to ask any questions you’d like – perhaps you’re unsure if the information you are collecting is sensitive and unclear if you need consent, or maybe you want clarity around how long you should keep information for. No matter what your data protection question is, the team will be on-hand to help.

“GDPR is all about protecting personal data,” said Andrew Hartley, Director of Legal & Governance. “As University of Salford employees, we regularly collect and process the personal information of our staff and students so it’s really important we address any concerns and uncertainties we have as an organisation.”

We hope colleagues will take advantage of these drop-in sessions. Please don't be shy and feel free to ask any question you’d like, no matter how basic you think it is. We’re here to support you.”
