One of Jisc’s activities is to monitor and, where possible, influence regulatory developments that affect us and our customer universities, colleges and schools as operators of large computer networks. Since Janet and its customer networks are classified by Ofcom as private networks, postings here are likely to concentrate on the regulation of those networks. Postings here are, to the best of our knowledge, accurate on the date they are made, but may well become out of date or unreliable at unpredictable times thereafter. Before taking action that may have legal consequences, you should talk to your own lawyers.

Or you can just use my free GDPR project plan.

Webinar "GDPR: into practice"

16 March 2018 at 12:30pm

[UPDATE] A recording of the webinar is now available

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will require all organisations to examine their processing of personal data. Understanding why and how data are being processed, and what the appropriate legal basis is for the processing, will be essential if organisations are to meet the GDPR’s requirements for information provision and data subject rights.

This briefing, following on from last year’s introduction, will look at three key processes:

  1. How to analyse the lifecycles of personal information you process
  2. How to identify the correct legal basis for processing
  3. How to structure privacy notices to provide information to data subjects in a human-friendly, comprehensible, way

The online briefing is free to attend, and is open to anyone from Jisc member institutions and other research and education communities. We reserve the right to limit the number of bookings from the same institution. Register through the website...
