With the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation coming into effect on May 25, understand how universities like yours can take the right steps towards compliance with this free eBook – and other useful resources.

Your university on a journey on a journey

Your university is on a journey with lots of ‘data subjects’. They’re students, lecturers, cleaners, government persons, and more. Every year, you welcome aboard lots of new data subjects – collecting names, addresses, dates of birth, and other important information in the process.

During an academic year, you’ll transfer pieces of their data to – for example, an insurance firm, or the authorities or an alumni organisation. In that time, people will leave. Many will stay. When the start of the next academic year arrives, new people will join. The journey starts over.

Towards GDPR compliance

The new GDPR creates a uniform European legal framework in which European data subjects connected to your university have several rights they can exercise as of May 25th. Are you aware of them?
