The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in force from 25 May 2018. Along with the new Data Protection Act 2018, this is the most significant update to data protection law in two decades to meet today's information age.


GDPR strengthens individuals' rights and brings new requirements on organisations to demonstrate accountability, matched by new penalties for non-compliance. The UK Government has brought GDPR into UK law as part of a Data Protection Act 2018. We will publish updated guidance here.

The UofG online Introduction to GDPR training course is a requirement for all University of Glasgow staff and PGR students (login to Moodle required). The GDPR training presentation slides are available to download for reference.

NEW - the Online Information Asset Register is now live.
