Cambridge University Libraries Staff : GDPR update Tue 22 Oct 2019   14:00 [Places]

Led by : James Knapton

In this session the University’s Information Compliance Officer will give a short presentation on the core provisions of data protection legislation and how these have been operating in practice since the changes introduced in May 2018. He will talk about some of the main challenges of the new legal and regulatory landscape and how they impact on various University activities, including academic research, HR and events marketing. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions.

One day workshop for CUL Managers

L&D will contact workshop attendees approximately 3 months after the training with some basic questions to see how effective found the training and how training learnt from has been applied into work practice.

This is an interactive workshop, designed to help new staff learn more about the Cambridge University Library and meet some of the key people who work in it.

Staff will take part in some fun activities to learn more about other departments within the Cambridge University Libraries, have a presentation from a member of the Leadership Team about the wider workings of the University and have time to check their HR24 Induction Checklists and meet other new starters. Designed to be more informal, this workshop is a great opportunity to meet other staff, make contacts and ask any questions that you may have come across in your first month of employment.
