Experts on GDPR
Our Creative Director, James, was on a panel of experts for TERMINALFOUR’s third webinar instalment regarding GDPR
On Thursday 12th April 2018, our Creative Director, James, was on a panel of experts for TERMINALFOUR’s third webinar instalment regarding GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations). More than 700 attendees, James spoke alongside other experts about the processes which will need to be reviewed and planning that will need to be done in higher education establishments before the GDPR compliance date of 25th May 2018.
With potential disruption to university services such as student recruitment, student administration and alumni engagement, processes need to be re-mapped and monitored. This is especially important with the huge amount of data that is being transferred across services and staff.
The series created by TERMINALFOUR was split into three sections, this panel discussion was the third and final instalment. The first covered a basic introduction to GDPR, how it will impact certain student services and what can be done to improve a university’s processes and preparation.
The second webinar in the three-part series included an explanation of the practical steps that need to take place to comply with the new regulations. This included the student recruitment journey, the impact of higher education CRM configuration and the challenges around data retention for these establishments.
The third part, in which James was involved, incorporated legal, digital governance and GDPR experts discussing practical questions that universities and colleges may have raised. James specifically discussed the implementation of digital forms, Facebook Pixel and cookies and the changes to existing privacy policies on websites.
