Making personal data safer - GDPR.
The University of Oxford handles a large amount of personal data, and we take data privacy very seriously.
We work continuously to ensure our policies and processes are up-to-date.
The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018 provides the University with an opportunity to further strengthen the way we protect people’s data and ensure that privacy is central to what we do.
A University-wide improvement programme is currently underway led by our Information Compliance Team with representatives from across the institution.
Staff and colleagues looking to find out more should visit our Data Privacy webpages.
Others wishing to find out more about the University’s current approach to data protection can view the existing policy.
