23 January, 2017 - SLMS Introduction to Information Governance

Time: 13:30:00 - 15:00:00

This event will provide clear guidance on information governance responsibilities and control, how these affect research activities and how the SLMS Information Governance Framework can help researchers meet their legal obligations. UCL staff and students who handle sensitive personal data are eligible to attend. If you have attended this course before or you have up-to-date Information Governance training then you do not need to attend this event. Attendance at this event together with successful completion of an online assessment in Moodle (‘SLMS Information Governance - Assessment of Understanding’) will fulfil your information governance training needs under the SLMS IG Framework. On passing the assessment, a certificate will be issued and your training is recorded on the SLMS IG training register. Training will be valid for one year. To renew you just need to retake and pass the Moodle Assessment of Understanding online.
