Information Security & Data Protection online training

We are all responsible for protecting the personal data which individuals have entrusted to the University. Failure to do so can result in significant harm and distress to the individuals whose data we hold, and damage to the University's reputation. 

The new Information Security & Data Protection course (launched in June 2020) is hosted online by Metacompliance. It replaces the Data Protection course (TBF26) on Blackboard. It is mandatory for University of Manchester employees and must be completed by everyone by 31 December 2020 regardless of when you last did your data protection training. The training introduces some new information security content, refreshes people’s understanding of data protection law and provides a reminder about Freedom of Information legislation.

The new course can be accessed from the Information Governance Office Training and Support page.

Please contact your local IGG/IGC for further information.
