Mandatory training modules

The University has created two mandatory online training modules covering data protection/GDPR and information security. They are hosted in MyReview and it is compulsory for all members of staff with access to MyReview to complete this training as part of the induction and annual review processes.
It is vitally important that we are all aware of the issues around data protection and information security to prevent against breaches of the Data Protection Act and the consequences that such breaches can bring both for individuals and the University.
The modules (and other relevant training) are accessed by logging in to MyReview. They should take around 20-25 minutes each to complete and feature a test. Completion is recorded and Heads of School or Division are contacted about any staff who fail to complete the modules.

Staff without access to MyReview

Some groups of staff do not have access to the MyReview platform (e.g. some honorary and associate staff, as well as some TSS and hourly paid teaching staff. All of these staff are still required to complete data protection and information security training, so a separate training module covering these topics has been created. It should also be completed by any students undertaking reserach involving the collection and analysis of personal data. It can be accessed here:
