Data Losses and Reporting
Loss of personal data or breaches of the Data Protection Act can occur when identifiable data is lost, stolen, unintentionally or maliciously disclosed or altered.
The university's Data loss assessment and reporting procedure explains the steps to be taken for any incident involving the actual or potential loss of personal data. Any loss or suspected loss of personal data should be reported to the university as soon as possible after the incident is discovered. This helps us to reduce the impact of any data loss on the individuals affected.
Under GDPR, we are required to report data breaches to the ICO within 72 hours of us becoming aware of it.
Further information on reporting a breach is available on our internal pages.
If you think that the data that we hold about you is inaccurate or incorrect, contact Information Compliance.
