General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The European Union General Data Protection Regulation, also known as EU GDPR, went into effect on May 25, 2018. It regulates how organizations must protect and handle the information of people who are in the European Union. In the worst-case scenario, European Data Protection regulators could levy hefty fines to organizations that are subject to but do not comply with the new regulation.
As a global university, Drexel University works on site and online with students, faculty, staff, patients, research subjects, and others in many countries, including some European Union countries.
The Chief Information Security Officer, Dr. Pablo Molina works with representatives from several Drexel University offices to inventory our systems and processes. The team also works with the Office of the General Counsel to identify what aspects of GDPR may apply to Drexel University.
