Data Protection Champions and Steering Group

All areas of the University should have their own data protection champion

Data Protection Champions

The data protection champion for your area should be your first point of contact for data protection queries.

A business area is defined as a part of the University that has a common set of activities and records. It is difficult to define a business area precisely, but each school will probably have two or more Data Protection Champions.
