Email is our most common medium for sharing information internally and externally.
In data protection terms it can be a risky way of sharing personal data. Sending emails to the wrong recipient is a very common cause of data breaches and can result in enforcement, litigation and monetary penalties for the University. Sending to the wrong recipient is an easy mistake to make and emails get forwarded into long threads to those that may not have a reason to view the data.
If you send personal data to the wrong recipient please report it to the Data Protection Officer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and take the steps to recall the email or have the recipient delete it.
