The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018 are now in force in Ireland. These pages will be updated regularly in order to provide staff and students with the guidance and support needed to meet their responsibilities and comply with University policies.

The Trinity Data Protection Policy is currently being re-drafted, however staff and students are advised to refer to the College Data Protection Procedural Guidelines for guidance and information on data protection compliance at the University.

Trinity IT Services has a very useful guide to IT Security and GDPR. Guidance on data protection for health research and on the Health Research Regulations 2018 is available from the Health Research Board (HRB) and the Health Research Consent Declaration Committee (HRCDC).
