Staff Guidance on Data Protection

The University of Oxford Compliance team’s guide to working with personal data.

These web pages are designed to help staff handle personal information in a way which complies with the University’s guidance and meets its legal requirements under GDPR.

Any new research project (or other University activity) which will be gathering or working with personal data will need to work through the Data Protection by Design framework (SSO required). This involves completing a screening questionnaire, and then one of two further assessments depending on the outcome of the screening questionnaire. Researchers may find they are prompted to do this as part of the process of ethical review.
