To comply with GDPR, it’s essential that we only hold personal data we genuinely need. This means we should be deleting historic personal data from our services regularly (ie removing data about students who’ve graduated or left, deleting data about staff who have left).
At the same time, due to the pandemic, our services are being used more than ever and the pandemic has meant that we have entered overages on some of our services in terms of storage and license use.
To solve both of the issues described, we need to be automating a process of data cleansing on many of our services going forward. This will not only ensure we are GDPR compliant, but it will also reduce our costs significantly.
This compliance work has been done already for Blackboard Learn and Media Hopper Replay but not for PebblePad, Media Hopper Create, Moodle, Turnitin, TopHat, WebPA, Bristol Online Surveys and Blackboard Collaborate.
